We Share The Journey
Mental illnesses affect people of all ages, races and incomes. They are biologically based disorders, unrelated to one's upbringing, character or personal willpower. Most important of all: mental illnesses are treatable.
When individuals, family members and professionals work in partnership to care for a person as a whole, not just an illness, we take the first steps of recovery together.
Transitions-Mental Health Association (TMHA) is a nonprofit organization committed to reducing the stigma of mental illnesses, maximizing personal potential and providing innovative mental health services to individuals and families in need. We offer a full spectrum of programs in both San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties. Our mission is to help children and adults live, work and grow.
Transitions-Mental Health Association is a non-profit organization that helps children and adults live, work and grow in our community. TMHA operates 27 programs at over 35 locations that reach over 2,000 people and 1,500 families in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. The emphasis of TMHA's many services is to teach vital independent living skills, and build a framework for community re-entry through personal empowerment and hands on experience. For over 30 years, T-MHA has been dedicated to providing housing, employment, case management and life-skills support to teens and adults with mental illness; and support, resources and education for their loved ones.

What is SLO Hotline?
SLO Hotline can be reached at 800.549.4499. We are a suicide prevention and mental health crisis line that is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also call us for emotional and mental health support for yourself or someone else. We are here for you.
Confidential telephone services are always available for anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress through this program. SLO Hotline is also available to answer non-emergency calls from anyone in need of emotional or mental health information or referrals.
SLO Hotline is a valuable resource in the community, supporting the work of local government and mental health service agencies and relieving call volume for the local 911 service. Additionally, SLO Hotline will refer callers with other needs to 211, the resource phone number available for all other community information and referral needs.
In addition to providing these services, SLO Hotline strives to reduce stigma, educate and inform our community about mental illness – what it is and is not.
SLO Hotline is a program of Transitions-Mental Health Association, a community-based nonprofit. It began as a local crisis support and resources referral hotline and continues its service to the community now with a new stigma-reduction and mental health recovery mission.
