From the Illinois Department of Human Services Mental Health Resources: Governor J.B. Pritzker recently announced the “Call 4 Calm” emotional support hotline to help those struggling with emotional/mental health issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The hotline, free of charge and available 24/7, will serve as an avenue for individuals to speak with a mental health services professional in order to deal with pressures resulting from the continuing spread of COVID-19.

Any individual seeking mental health assistance can text the word “TALK” to 552020 and a mental health support professional will provide assistance within 24 hours. Spanish speakers can text “HABLAR” to the same number for Spanish speaking support. Additional resources such as “food,” “unemployment” and “shelter” can also be received by texting the corresponding word to the same number, 552020.
