We have updated the crisis information on our website. For the crisis numbers, text line and chat, please see https://namimainlinepa.org/crisis-numbers/.

For resources to help you cope with, prepare for and/or prevent a crisis, see https://namimainlinepa.org/resources-for-coping-with-preparing-for-and-preventing-a-crisis/.

NAMI is calling for a standard of care for crisis services in every community that includes — 24/7 call centers that answer 988 calls locally, mobile crisis teams and crisis stabilization programs — that end the revolving door of ER visits, arrests, incarceration and homelessness. For more information, please see https://nami.org/Advocacy/Crisis-Intervention/988-Reimagining-Crisis-Response.
To find out more about how you can join NAMI Main Line PA in advocating for the funding and services needed to support 988, please contact Loran or Edie.

Tell PA Officials: Act Now & Plan for the Closure of Montgomery County’s Only Year-round Shelter Serving Single Adults

One crisis can change everything. Whether it’s a global pandemic or a hurricane that causes significant damage in our local area, the line between security and uncertainty is often thinner than we thought.

In uncertain times, we all need something steady to rely on. With the closure of the only year-round shelter for individuals in our community during a time of soaring rents and other costs, we need officials to act now and plan ahead.

We need a plan for where our neighbors can go in times of personal crisis or hardship. We ask the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to partner with Montgomery County to provide space for a temporary shelter until the relocated shelter can open.

For more information contact: Bill England at bill@pahealthaccess.org.
