relink.org’s mission is to connect those in need to resources and now more than ever, impart hope to the community! In the face of this COVID-19 crisis, we wanted to put together a summary page with some practical statewide information for those in need of mental health or addiction services. This is only the initial information we have gathered, so if you have a resource you would like to suggest for this page or changes, you can submit them to our statewide coordinator Bethany Friedrichsen.
