Free, Virtual Support Group for COVID Survivors 

We know how devastating the COVID-19 pandemic has been and how scary a COVID-19 diagnosis can be.  That's why we are offering free, virtual support groups through CovidCONNECT.

We encourage you to join one of our free session to talk with other Marylanders who have had COVID-19. Trained peer facilitators host small groups twice a month.

Please note that space is limited to 15 participants and members will be admitted on a first-registered, first-served basis.

Only individuals who have contracted COVID-19 are eligible to register for these support groups.

988: New Suicide & Crises Hotline Goes Into Effect July 16th


What is the Lifeline and will 988 replace it? 

The Lifeline is a national network of over 200 local, independent, and state-funded crisis centers equipped to help people in emotional distress or experiencing a suicidal crisis. Moving to 988 will not replace the Lifeline, rather it will be an easier way to access a strengthened and expanded network of crisis call centers. Beginning July 16, 2022, people can access the Lifeline via 988 or by the 10-digit number (which will not go away). When will 988 go live nationally? The 988 dialing code will be available nationwide for call (multiple languages), text or chat (English only) on July 16, 2022. Until then, those experiencing a mental health or suicide-related crisis, or those helping a loved one through crisis, should continue to reach the Lifeline at its current number, 1-800-273-8255. 

How is 988 different from 911? 

988 was established to improve access to crisis services in a way that meets our country’s growing suicide and mental health related crisis care needs. 988 will provide easier access to the Lifeline network and related crisis resources, which are distinct from 911 (where the focus is on dispatching Emergency Medical Services, fire and police as needed). 

Is 988 available for substance use crisis? 

The Lifeline accepts calls from anyone who needs support for a suicidal, mental health and/or substance use crisis.
