Pause Rhode Island

DURING THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES OF CRISIS, PAUSE RHODE ISLAND IS HERE TO HELP.

Now is a good time to pause–to assess, to self-reflect, and if needed, to ask for help. In Rhode Island, we’re experiencing unprecedented times of hardship due to COVID-19. Some of us have lost jobs, homes, the ability to secure our next meal, and the hardest of all, our loved ones. We’re dealing with uncertainty, juggling work from home and childcare priorities.

Despite the ongoing chaos around us, we can and will get through this. PAUSE Rhode Island, along with a unified partnership of Rhode Island mental health experts, is here so you can pause, simply breathe, pick up the pieces, heal and move forward.

 

PAUSE Rhode Island provides free community outreach and support services for Rhode Islanders dealing with stress and anxiety due to COVID-19. If you or someone you care about needs assistance or information on how to deal with COVID-19 related stress and anxiety, please pause and call one of our 24/7 hotlines:

For 18+: Call (401) 414-LINK (5465)

For under 18: Call 855-KID (543)-LINK (5465)
