Nevada has the extreme misfortune of being on two lists of US states nobody wants to be on. The first is the list of the ten states with the most prevalence of mental illness. Nevada is seventh-to-last. The second is the list of the ten states with the least access to mental health care. Nevada is sixth-to-last. Add in two fatal drug overdoses annually on average, (plus the fact it’s home to Las Vegas), and all in all you have a state that could use some help. Well, we want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Silver 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.
Join Together Northern Nevada offers a 24-hour counseling hotline available to all Nevada residents, despite the name. The phone number is 1-800-450-9530.
