Nebraska’s Rural Response Hotline has provided information and
assistance to individuals and families throughout rural Nebraska for
over twenty years. The Hotline is a vital resource for individuals and
families who are feeling overwhelmed with stress, depression, or other
mental health related issues.
When a farmer, rancher, or rural resident calls the Hotline, they are connected to an experienced staff person who is equipped to assist callers through the COMHT (Counseling, Outreach, and Mental Health Therapy) Program. Staff members are trained to work with individuals over the telephone or in their home providing confidential information and assistance. No-cost counseling vouchers are also available for individuals in crisis who wish to seek further support through a mental health professional.
In addition, staff may refer callers to attorneys, financial counselors, clergy, other farmers, or mediation to assist with the crisis they are experiencing.
The Nebraska Rural Response Hotline is provided by the Farm Crisis Response Council through Interchurch Ministries of Nebraska. Funding for the COMHT Program is provided in part through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of Rural Health, and the Community Service Block Grant.
If you or someone you know are in need of these services please call the Hotline at 1-800-464-0258.
