Mental Health America Hawaii releases its Human Services Directory
by Larry Geller
The timing is painful: we’ve just lost Robin Williams to an apparent suicide. Could he have been helped?
This morning a mass email announced the publication of Mental Health America’s updated Finding Help Human Services Directory. It’s a list of phone numbers for a variety of services, not limited to mental health. For example, they also list senior services. It’s not posted on their web page yet, apparently, so get your copy from the link above. A valuable contribution.
MHA-Hawaii also accepts donations here.
I hope this could turn into a phone app one day, so that smartphone users could just press a button to find out where to find or get help. It would be relatively simple to do, given the tools available these days for writing simple apps.
