Mental Health Resources: Why They Matter to Missouri

Click here for a comprehensive list of over 60 digital mental health resources

Protecting and caring for your mental health is more important than ever. It can seem like the bad news never ends, and it can be easy to feel powerless. I know. I feel that way myself at times. Still, I believe that with the right resources and support systems, we can all be our best and healthiest selves so that we can continue to fight for our communities. Our best chance to win the fight and achieve real change starts within ourselves. Your experience matters. Your health matters. You matter. 

From how we handle stress to how we communicate with each other, to how we form healthy habits and lifestyles, mental health is the most important building block there is. That’s why we need to take care of ourselves and take care of each other.

Unfortunately, not everyone can get the care they need and deserve. Mental health access can face obstacles such as cost, distance, reliable Internet access, and – most often – to on-going and unfair social stigmas that make it difficult to ask for help. To help overcome those obstacles, my campaign has compiled these mental health resources anyone can use. Free, available, and compassionate care should be accessible to everyone.
