Recognizing the strong emotions and associated stress many people are feeling with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Louisiana Department of Health’s Office of Behavioral Health has established a hotline to help Louisianans cope.

The Keep Calm Through COVID crisis phone line provides trained, compassionate counselors to support Louisianans through this difficult time. Counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with information and service coordination, linking callers to mental health and substance abuse counseling services. This service is available to the public at no charge.

Call the Keep Calm Through COVID hotline at 1-866-310-7977 at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All calls are confidential. This line is for counseling only, and people calling for general information should call 211.

Especially during times such as these, experiencing high stress levels and increasing anxiety is common, and maintaining sobriety can be challenging. Here are some helpful tools you can use to help you cope and maintain your sobriety while practicing the recommended physical distancing: 

  • Reflect on your journey and your successes
  • Journal 
  • Maintain your current support system through social media outreach
  • Get active! Dance, walk, run, practice yoga … engage in physical movement
  • Stay connected through video chat programs such as FaceTime and Skype
  • Meditate; create a calming environment
  • Download apps that offer peer support and counseling
  • Attend virtual church, faith-based or support services if applicable
  • Read or listen to an online book
  • Listen to a podcast
