Mental Health Crisis Response in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Care Partnership has compiled a list of local resources that you can reach out to if you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, or just need someone to talk to. You can also find a list of hotlines, and reach out to the one closest to you, here. A third route would be to call the National Suicide Prevention hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The State of Mental Health in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania currently ranks 1st in the United States for mental healthcare. This is primarily attributable to Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). Together, these agencies determine the standard of care that all Pennsylvania’s residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist. OMHSAS wants to provide the opportunities for growth, recovery, and inclusion to every Pennsylvania resident, through increasing accessibility to culturally competent services.

OMHSAS’s children’s behavioral system is youth-guided and family-oriented. The services that are provided for adults adapt to the unique needs of Pennsylvania's older population. With Pennsylvania’s stellar ranking, the focus has shifted to preventative care and early intervention care, as well as care that values, respects, and accommodates diversity. As the OMHSAS focuses on eliminating discrimination and stigma, and enforcing individual human rights, more communities are able to access quality care that they need to become resilient. OMHSAS ensures that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call PA Get Help Now at 1-800-662-HELP.

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