With the COVID-19 pandemic, many Maui County residents may be experiencing distress due to
significant issues such as job loss, fear for their health and safety, or concerns about children and family members.

Residents can get access to mental health services for themselves and others by calling the toll-free Crisis Mobile Outreach Number at 1-800-753-6879. The hotline is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Callers will be connected with a live person from the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Health, and if necessary, a trained and experienced Aloha House staff member will be dispatched to wherever the caller or the person in crisis is to provide support, information, an assessment and recommendation for services.

“Crisis workers collaborate with other emergency service responders, including the Police and Fire Departments, to assist them in their duties and to provide training and education regarding the best ways to help our residents in need,” a press release from Maui Behavioral Health Resources read.
