Calls to the Minnesota Warmline reached a record high in July, with more than 750 calls during the month. The total reflects an increase of more than 70% in the number of calls over the previous July.
“Mental Health Minnesota took over the Warmline in 2015, and we have seen a significant increase in calls since that time,” said Shannah Mulvihill, executive director. “We are really pleased that so many people are able to use the peer-to-peer approach offered through our Warmline to support their mental health recovery.”
The Minnesota Warmline provides a peer-to-peer approach to mental health recovery, support and wellness. Calls are answered by our team of professionally trained Certified Peer Specialists, who have first hand experience living with a mental health condition. The Warmline is open Monday through Saturday, 5 PM to 10 PM.
The Warmline also recently added a texting option, which can be accessed by texting “support” to 85511.
