This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The State of Mental Health in Arizona

While Arizona currently ranks 27th in the United States for mental healthcare, Arizona has moved up in ranking in the last five years by addressing major concerns surrounding both short-term and long-term behavioral and mental health care. Since the implementation of the Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)  in 1982, mental health care has become more nearly 2 million Arizonans who would otherwise not be able to see a psychologist, therapist, or counselor to meet their mental health needs. By increasing access to support groups that complement care from a mental health professional, Mental Health Arizona makes it possible for all Arizonans to find a sense of community and add to their support system. You can find more information on the current state, goals, and resources, by visiting Resource to Recover - Arizona’s site here.

Mental Health America of Arizona

MHA of AZ aims to educate Arizonans on mental health disorders to reduce the stigma surrounding a diagnosis. With a more well-informed community, it is believed that those with a diagnosis will feel more supported in reaching out for help and connecting with a mental health professional, such as a counselor or therapist. You can find resources for mental health in the workplace, a mental health screening tool, and the State of Mental Health in America 2020 report, here.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.

With group counseling sessions led by a trained member with a diagnosis (past or present), meetings follow a set of 12 principles for support. NAMI meetings are meant to complement your existing treatment plan with your counselor or psychologist. There are many chapters of NAMI that meet in Arizona, including in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and southern Arizona. Find yours here.
