Alaska continuously rates among states with the highest suicide rate, as well as among states with the highest substance abuse per capita. In 2018, nearly 55% of Alaskan residents did not receive health care for their mental illness. No other state even crossed the halfway mark, statistically making Alaska the state with the least amount of treatment for mental health. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Last Frontier, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
As an Alaskan resident, simply dialing 211 leads to an entire network of free and confidential assistance. Alaska 2-1-1 offers free counseling, treatment programs, free information on mental health and substance abuse, as well as legal services, and much more. There is also a separate drug crisis hotline available M-F, 8:30AM to 5:00PM, and the number is 1-800-478-2221.
