Help is here.

If you are worried about your mental health or substance use — you are not alone. We can help.

We’ve got your back.

Your union offers help — find details below or, scroll down to the bottom of the page to find a local 12-step meeting or other recovery group.

Recovery is possible.

Michael is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and is in long-term recovery. He can answer questions, lend support, and help you make a plan that works.
