Statewide Toll-free Mental Illness Helpline - 800-343-6264

NAMI Oregon maintains a toll-free information and referral Helpline for individuals living with mental illness and their family members. Our toll-free Helpline (800-343-6264) is answered by trained volunteers and staff who provide consumers and family members statewide with information on local mental health services; access to mental health providers; prescription assistance programs; housing, transportation, and other basic services; supportive peer counseling; family-centered and peer-delivered education programs; and consumer rights. We also connect callers with local NAMI affiliates and other organizations that can provide further local information.

Help ensure your fellow Oregonians take advantage of this service. Download and distribute a press release and information sheet on NAMI's programs and services.
