Get Help with Your
Mental Health

When you need help with your mental health, the pathway to support your choice really matters. For example, when you want to connect with a peer you can trust, the NAMI Peer-run Warm Line provides a caring peer specialist on the phone daily from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. But when you can’t wait to receive the counseling and support you need, you should contact the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. Here’s the difference:

More About the NAMI Peer-run Warm Line (aka CLEAR)

The mission of NAMI Collier County’s Peer-run Warm Line is CLEAR: Connecting Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Recovery through statewide services utilized and facilitated by members of the peer community.

This peer-run service is for any individual in search of making a connection with someone who has lived experience in mental health recovery. Whether you have begun your personal recovery journey or are in the process of deciding what that may look like for you, calling the Warm Line connects you with someone who will listen with the understanding and compassion only a peer can provide.

Warm Line operators utilize Intentional Peer Support and Trauma-Informed practices, along with their lived experience, to engage in mutually beneficial discussions and shared learning experiences. Callers will not be required to disclose any personal information that causes discomfort to share.

A NAMI Collier County program, CLEAR is funded by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
