Alabama Mental Health Resources for Children

Hello Alabama!  For crisis situations that are not life-threatening, find mental and behavioral health resources and other information below close to you. While these resources are general, the best resource is your family’s medical provider.

If you are in a life threatening situation, call 9-1-1 or go to an emergency department.

If you are having thoughts of suicide or need to talk, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 988. If you prefer to text, you can text "START" to 741-741 where a live, trained specialist will respond back to you.
