HALLOWELL – NAMI Maine announces the launch of a new online mental health resource database, now available on the organization’s website. Searchable by Maine county, service type, or organization name, this new database includes over 250 Maine-based mental health resources.

The new database is partially an outgrowth of the NAMI Maine Helpline, which provides callers with mental health resource information and referrals. While the Helpline is operational weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the online resource database is accessible to Mainers 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

River Martin, NAMI Maine Helpline manager, sees the new online resource as an adjunct to the phone-based resources. “While many of the resources Helpline callers seek are available online, it can be difficult to use the right search terms to find what you’re looking for,” he says. “With the new online database, I can often talk someone through a search while I’m on the phone with them. People find it so much easier to see all Maine-based, mental health related services in one place.”
