AUSTIN, Texas – The lives of many Texans have changed drastically due to isolation measures put in place in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

That isolation, added to the fear caused by a global pandemic, can be a lot for anyone to handle. There are several counseling options in the Austin area that are now offering tele-therapy.

If you are in immediate need of help for a life-threatening emergency: call 911.

For suicide prevention: Contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (TRS: 1-800-799-4889).

Reach out to each individual organization to see whether they are taking new patients or to find out whether you need health insurance. There are options in this list for those without insurance.
