Sonoma County has just activated what they are calling a “Warm Line” for people to talk through any anxiety or emotional distress during the pandemic. People can call ( 707) - 565 - 2652 seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Service in Spanish is available as well as interpretation for other languages.
At the other end of the line, counselors will offer support, guidance, and referrals.
