The San Francisco Peer-Run Warm Line Needs Your Support!

Everyone agrees that The Mental Health Association of San Francisco (MHASF)’s Peer-Run Warm Line is an important and valuable lifesaving service, but we aren’t sure where the support will come from. Due to uncertain economic times and without strong commitments from prospective funders, we must plan on its closure. Based on the call volume and available funding, we had estimated the line to close in April but, with planned reductions and a focus on local San Francisco and San Francisco Bay Area callers, we will be able to extend the life of the Warm Line to June of 2018.

Many callers affected by this change have expressed their grief over losing the Warm Line’s life-saving support. This includes callers who were previously homeless, alone, and considering harming themselves. One caller, upon finding out about these changes, asked to be immediately transferred to the Suicide Prevention Line because he was so distraught.

The Mental Health Association of San Francisco is reaching out to local, county, and state officials for help in solving the funding issues, but still needs the help of the community. If you are interested in supporting MHASFs efforts, we encourage you to let your local government officials know. Please contact your district supervisor, County & State representatives, the Mental Health Board, the Health Commission and the Mayor’s Office on Disability.
