California has launched its first statewide mental health line that will provide non-emergency emotional support to those who need it.
California Senator Scott Wiener says this line is a huge help as many people struggle with their emotional well being.
"Peer-to-peer support is a proven way of helping people stay healthy and get the help they need. The California Peer-Run Warm Line is an important resource for so many people, and I’m thrilled we were able to get it funded.”
The service is available to anyone who calls or texts the line at 1-855-845-7415.
The line will be staffed weekdays from 7am-11pm, Saturdays from 7am-3pm and Sundays from 7am-9pm.
