As reported by America’s Health Rankins, for at least the past decade, Kentucky residents have reported poor mental health around 4% more often than the national average. Nearly one in every twenty Kentuckians suffers from some form of serious mental health condition. Furthermore, in 2017, Kentucky had the fifth highest fatal drug overdose rate nationwide. Unfortunately, numbers haven’t dwindled too much, either. It’s a sad situation, and we want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Bluegrass 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.
