Hotlines

In light of recent events, we went searching for an easy-to-read list of resources for illnesses and disabilities. While many sites proved useful, we had to dig depending on the illness searched. We've compiled a list of contact numbers for a variety of illnesses and crisis situations for this reason. While we have not contacted them personally, we have verified information the best we can. Please reach us by Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail with suggestions for additions or for help finding other resources.
