Disaster Distress/ Crisis Helpline

April 22, 2020

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990 is a 24/7 365-day-a-year National hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human caused disaster, including an infectious disease outbreak. This toll free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support is available to all residents in the United States and its territories. Stress, anxiety and other depression-like symptoms are common reactions after a disaster. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained counselor.

The Disaster Distress Helpline puts people in need of counseling on the path to recovery. Staff members provide counseling and support before, during and after disasters and refer people to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support.
