1-888-NYC-Well Mental Health hotline

Dear Friend,

When our family needed mental health support, we weren’t sure where to look. Now, thanks to NYC Well, all New Yorkers have somewhere to turn when they need mental health care.

NYC Well is a one-click, one-call connection to counseling, crisis intervention, peer support, and referrals to ongoing treatment and support services. Help for you or someone you care about is as close as your phone or computer, and it’s free and confidential. You can reach NYC Well 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Here’s how:

We know that mental illness is treatable, and with the right help people can turn their lives around. That’s why we launched ThriveNYC, our comprehensive plan to build a more inclusive mental health system. NYC Well is at the core of that plan, and it is for everyone—no matter where you live or how much money you make.

We want every New Yorker to know this number: 1-888-NYC-Well. If you or a loved one is struggling with mental illness or substance misuse, help is available right now at NYC Well.
