COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a source of stress, anxiety and worry for many in our community—adults and child alike. While everyone reacts differently to times of uncertainty, taking care of your mental health is essential for your wellbeing. Coping with stress is healthy for you and the people you care about.

As a result of the current state of emergency in our area, the North Texas Behavioral Health Authority (NTBHA) has developed a dedicated COVID-19 mental health support line to provide trauma-informed support and psychological first aid for those experiencing stress and anxiety due to the crisis. The NTBHA COVID-19 Mental Health Support line can be reached at 833-251-7544. If during the call it is determined you need a higher level of care, you will be transferred directly to the traditional 24/7 NTBHA crisis line at 866-260-8000. If your emergency is life-threatening, please call 911.

It is normal to feel worried and nervous during times of public crisis. We encourage you to take advantage of this dedicated 24/7 NTBHA support line by calling 833-251-7544. We’re in this together. And together, our community will emerge stronger than ever.

Note: This service is operating as an adjunct to the NTBHA’s normal crisis services and allow for direct transfers between lines to address a need for a crisis level care.
