Approximately one in five Maine residents report some type of mental illness annually. These are just the folks who report. Close to 5% of adults living in Maine have a diagnosed SMI, or serious mental illness. In 2018 alone, 345 state residents died of fatal drug overdoses, which is just under one person per day. Last year, Maine was among the ten states with the lowest statistical access to mental health care. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Pine Tree 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.
