When you or a loved one are in crisis, the last thing you want to do is spend 15 minutes online trying to find the right number to call or the right office to visit to find help. Just as you should know the nearest hospital to you in case of emergency, you should also know who to call and where to seek help in case of a mental health or substance use crisis. Check out the resources in your community listed below. Remember, if you or someone you love is in immediate danger, call 911 or go to a hospital or other setting that offers emergency care. If you or someone you know needs immediate help, you can contact the Crisis Line at your Community Mental Health Authority or reach the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline by calling or texting 988. If you are not in a crisis, but need someone to talk to, you can contact the Peer Support Warmline in Michigan or the Helpline at NAMI at 1-800 -273-8255. Warmlines are staffed by trained peers who have been through their own mental health struggles and know what it’s like to need help.

Record Your Activities for the Day

The challenge is designed to spur change – in mindsets, behaviors, opportunities and practices. Please help us keep track of how individuals are engaging with the 21-Day Stigma Challenge resources and actions. Each action you take, each resource you review, will add a ticket in your name to the drawing for one of five $100 gift cards at the end of the challenge.
