It’s estimated that 43% of adults in Alabama are experiencing some anxiety or depression-related symptoms, and almost 25% struggle to get the help they need. Approximately one in every 25 Alabama residents suffers from a serious mental health condition. This includes schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and/or major depression. Our Alabama crisis line is here to help you cope with those symptoms and get on the path to long-term recovery. According to their site, “Poor mental health affects thousands of Alabamians and many illnesses go undiagnosed and untreated because of a shortage of providers.”
Anxiety and depression can be difficult to live with. When you’re faced with symptoms, it may feel as if things will never get better, so even calling our Alabama helpline is a big step. We want you to know there are many others who are or have been in your situation and that there’s hope. By reaching out to our Alabama hotline, you’ve taken the first step toward taking control of your life and beating the mental health challenges put in front of you.
