Music Heals : Mental Health : Resources

If you or someone you know is in crisis
and needs immediate help, call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)


As KEXP’s Music Heals programming explores the role of music in coping with depression and anxiety, we also recognize the need for hands-on help and having a professional to hear your needs. Below listeners can find resources available both national and in Washington state. You are not alone.
