During the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are facing stressful situations and might be feeling overwhelmed. Some families are facing unemployment with rent or mortgage payments as well as other family problems. If families are experiencing an emergency, they should call 9-1-1. For all other stressful situations, the Children’s Home Society of Florida is offering free access to its 24-hour Family Support Warm Line.
The Family Support Warm Line is available to provide compassionate counselors to family members of all ages: adults, teens, and children. Any family member may call or text 1-888-733-6303 or click here to get advice from a knowledgeable counselor, receive mental health support, or have someone listen to their problems and help them reflect or plan options they may consider.
The experienced counselors offer support for anxiety, depression, suicide, domestic violence, mental health support, general safety and well-being, adoption support, family counseling, caregiver counseling, referring to local resources, and other general support.
