Access to mental health care is an incredibly important for a US state to provide to its residents. Rather unfortunately for residents of Missouri, there isn’t an excellent job being done. In fact, according to Mental Health America, last year the state ranked among the ten with the least access. This isn’t wonderful news for a state with nearly one million residents diagnosed with some form of mental illness. Neither is knowing that in 2018 alone, more than 1,600 residents died of drug overdose. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Show-Me 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.
