Helena Reid is pursuing her Masters in Social Work at FSU. In the meantime, she’s been trained to handle whatever comes her way as a hotline counselor at Big Bend 2-1-1.

In Episode 5: Mental Health & The “Be Kind” Hotline, peace of mind is in short supply in 2020. But resources are available, and the best help may simply be a kind voice on the other end of the line.
If you or someone you know is considering suicide, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-8255.
Locally, you can dial 2-1-1. You’ll find help with mental health needs or you can get connected with other resources.
