Please see the information below regarding a great new teen resource offered by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness)-Maine.

Lots of things are different right now due to COVID-19, and that can feel overwhelming. Talk about your feelings and get support from another young person.

You are not alone! Text us at (207) 515 - 8398.

We're here for you every day from 12pm - 10pm. This peer support text line is for youth 14-20 years old and staffed by individuals under 23 years of age. 

Please note, the Teen Text Support Line is not a crisis line. If you believe that you or someone you know could be in crisis, please do not hesitate to connect with these local and national resources:
