NAMI Missouri

Suicide Prevention Lifeline

(800) 273-TALK or (800) SUICIDE


(800) 374-2138

NAMI Missouri’s WARMline is different from a hotline, and not intended for crisis situations.

When you are stressed, have a mental illness, are dealing with symptoms, expensive medicines, and long waits for doctors appointments, misunderstandings about your illness can be terribly isolating.  Even people with the very best of intentions sometimes don’t understand the long road to recovery.  It is NAMI Missouri’s goal that every person in Missouri has support and educational services when they need them.  We feel consumer support services are best provided by consumers for consumers:  who else could understand better?

Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Weekends and Holidays 3 p.m. – 9 p.m. CST


The Information HelpLine is an information and referral service which can be reached by calling 1 (800) 374-2138.
