Mental Health Association of San Francisco 

The Peer-Run Warm Line is a non-emergency resource for anyone in the Bay Area seeking emotional support. We provide assistance via phone and web chat on a nondiscriminatory basis to anyone in need. Some concerns callers share are challenges with interpersonal relationships, anxiety, panic, depression, finance, and alcohol and drug use.

Volunteers with personal lived experience of mental health challenges answer calls and instant messages, provide information on local resources, share their lived experience, and offer a warm, nonjudgmental, responsive human connection to people with a variety of needs and from all walks of life across Northern California. Serving Sonoma County, as well as the rest of California as of October 2019.
