Stressed about COVID-19? We’re here to talk.

If you are feeling overwhelmed with stress, fear and anxiety about the uncertainty surrounding this public health emergency, there is a special Keeping Calm through COVID Hotline you can call. This connects you to trained, compassionate counselors who can offer support and who can direct you to mental health and substance abuse counseling services.

Call 1-866-310-7977 24/7

Trained counselors available 24/7. All calls are confidential.


Volunteer Resources

Because of our critical need for healthcare workers, we have created a medical volunteer website in order to mobilize healthcare students and graduates from Louisiana universities and colleges to support the existing healthcare workforce that is quickly getting stretched thin. The website is also available to active members or retirees of Louisiana’s healthcare workforce who are willing and able to assist.

Delta is stepping up to help Louisiana during this trying time. Any volunteer healthcare workers trying to come to Louisiana can do so for free on Delta Airliines. Before arriving, healthcare workers have to register and become credentialed through Louisiana Volunteers in Action at
