Crisis Services


Need to talk? 1737 is free to call or text from any landline or mobile phone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” It’s a new and easy way to access the existing National Telehealth Services provided through the Alcohol and Drug, Depression, and Gambling Helplines. These helplines will still be accessible through the same phone numbers, but 1737 creates a new front door.
