Find help. Feel better.

Do you want personalized help finding the mental health resources you need? Lorain County has a new way to connect residents to the right mental health service the first time, while assisting potential clients to overcome obstacles to care.

The Lorain County Navigator can help you. 440.240.7025.

Lorain County Mental Health Navigator | How it Works

You call the Navigator at 440.240.7025, for yourself or your child, and discuss your mental health concerns. The Navigator will connect you with an agency, and can help solve payment, transportation, or language barriers to service. Available in English and Spanish.

This is not an emergency service. In a psychiatric emergency, please call 1.800.888.6161.

For non-emergency referrals, the Navigator is available weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., or leave a message any time. 440.240.7025.
