Let's be #mindPHL together

You’re not alone.

If you’re experiencing anxious thoughts or overwhelming sadness right now, you’re like many other people. Challenging times have forced many of us to recognize that we need to take care of our mental and emotional health.

Help is out there.

Free help is available through the public resources listed below. Your healthcare provider can also help you get the care you need.

Let’s take care of our mental health – together.

The City of Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross are part of the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. With you and other partners, we’ll continue to fight stigma and provide support for people with mental health challenges and their families.

Cuidemos de nuestra salud mental — ¡juntos!
