Need help? There is now a statewide hotline you can call.
The toll-free, round-the-clock support line can be contacted at 1-855-284-2494. For TTY, dial 724-631-5600.
The hotline was launched in partnership with Pennsylvania's Department of Human Services along with the Center for Community Rescoures (CCR), an experienced regional crisis and call center.
The hotline hopes to provide assistance to people struggling with emotions during the COVID-19 crisis.
