New Jersey mental health hotlines can be the last line of healthcare defense between a mental health crisis and either an injury or death. A hotline is a phone number that is in a state of constant operational readiness (why it’s called “hot”) to receive emergency calls. The emergency calls are answered by volunteer staffers.

Launched in 2005, by 2022, the destination “NJ211” was fielding over 1.3 million searches and calls per year to find health and human services. It’s accredited by AIRS, which means the organization employs an elite group of information and referral professionals who adhere to strict standards for handling callers with empathy and storing user data.

Not only is the hotline open 24/7, but Perform Care also has a mobile response unit that sends a behavioral specialist to any home in New Jersey within an hour of calling to diffuse a bad situation.
