Need Someone to Talk to? California Launches Mental Health Hotline for Calls or Instant Messaging

California residents in need of non-emergency emotional help can now call or instant message people at a hotline that debuted statewide Monday, just ahead of World Mental Health Day. The California Peer-Run Warm Line, available at 1-855-845-7415, will be staffed for most of the day to start. It's deliberately called a "warm line" because it's supposed to arrange for help before the situation raises to a "hotline" level. 


The free service offers non-emergency emotional support and referrals to anyone who calls or messages the number 1-855-845-7415It will be staffed 

7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays. The goal is to have 24/7 service by the end of the year.
