Provident's Mental Healthcare and Suicide Prevention Hotline
“I feel like no one understands...”
“I can’t talk to any of my friends about this...”
“I am afraid...”
“I don’t know where else to turn...”

The first thing you need to know is you are not alone. The Provident team is here 24 hours a day, every day, to help with whatever life crisis you are facing. Our mental health experts are a non-judgemental, caring source of information that listen and help you discover what the next steps can be toward overcoming your personal challenges.


Who do we help?

We help hundreds of people just like you every day. We've talked to callers as young as seven years old through seniors. All races, religions, sexual orientations, and economic backgrounds. We talk to parents who are worried about their child, adults who are struggling with grief, children who are dealing with a bully, medical professionals who need advice in dealing with a patient, and individuals who are contemplating suicide. We are here for anyone who is experiencing a mental or emotional crisis.


What happens when I call?

Our first priority is to make sure you and those around you are safe. We'll ask questions and help you identify what's really bothering you. We'll then work together to create a plan that works for you.


How much does it cost to talk to the Life Crisis team?

Your call to the Provident Crisis Hotline is absolutely free.
