We are proud to be supporting CalHOPE, the state’s crisis response program to help members of our communities impacted by the pandemic.

In partnership with local NAMI affiliates, we are offering safe, secure, and culturally sensitive emotional support for all Californians who have been impacted by COVID-19.

Through CalHOPE, NAMI California and our affiliate partners deliver crisis support for communities impacted by a national disaster. CalHOPE is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and run by the California Department of Health Care Services (CHCS).

NAMI affiliates working with CalHOPE include Fresno, Orange County, Santa Clara County, Santa Cruz, Westside Los Angeles, and the Mental Health Association for Chinese Communities.

The program provides warmlines for all Californians who may need support relating to COVID-19.
