Easy access to community & national care resources.

Individuals with mental health issues often struggle to find the appropriate resources and services. They must learn about available resources by contacting other services, asking their community, or searching online. LocalHelpNow instantly connects community members with local service providers for help with addiction, rehab, mental health, and more.

How We Help

Ascend launched LocalHelpNow, a central hub for anyone looking for local resources recommended by community behavioral health organizations. Through this platform, individuals can find and contact credible, relevant resources that can address their needs.

The website serves as a centralized repository for all resources that an individual may be referred to by a community health organization. It includes information on relevant providers such as phone numbers, addresses, and websites and is organized into categories such as treatment types, causes for treatment, and provider types.
