How do I use the directory?

To connect with a volunteer mental health provider licensed in your state:

  • Please visit our directory
  • Select your state 

Each provider’s contact information and preferred method of contact is listed so that you are able to reach out to them directly to schedule your first session. Deciding the frequency and length of sessions is between the provider and the client. The number of sessions a provider is willing to offer will vary. These are things we encourage providers to discuss with a client prior to the first session. 

Are the services provided by the Emotional PPE Directory confidential?

How much do services from the Directory cost?

Each volunteer listed within the directory decides how many free sessions they are willing to offer, though we encourage them to offer 2-3 sessions.
