To mitigate that feeling and safeguard your mental health, please look through these resources from around the state and nation that offer tips and insights for prioritizing mental health throughout these difficult times. We will get through this, and South Carolinians have the tools to help make it easier.

Remember, individuals in a mental health crisis situation can call SCDMH’s Community Crisis Response and Intervention hotline at 833.364.2274 for timely, confidential, and appropriate mental healthcare.
