Dealing with Mental Health
Hope4NC connects North Carolinians to mental health resources that help them cope and build resilience during times of crisis. The helpline is staffed 24/7 and provides free and confidential emotional support, counseling referrals, and community resources. As part of the state’s recent hurricane recovery efforts, it served over 4,400 people in the most impacted counties; now it is being made available to everyone in North Carolina’s 100 counties during the COVID-19 crisis.
