According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, nearly one-quarter of Idaho residents suffer from some form of mental disorder. Six percent of these people suffer from a more serious disorder such as schizophrenia or bipolar. Add to this the fact that Idaho consistently ranks among states with the most non-medical pain reliever abuse. Add to this the fact that nearly one Idaho resident dies of a drug overdose every day. It’s scary and we want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Gem State, 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 Idaho resident, simply dialing 211 leads to an entire network of free and confidential assistance. Idaho 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 Idaho CareLine available, and the number is 1-800-926-2588.
