Resources for People with Medical Issues

If you need immediate medical assistance, call 911 or go to the emergency room of Wilmington, St Francis Hospital, or ChristianaCare in Newark
If you are feeling suicidal, call the suicide prevention hotline 800-273-8255.
If you are having mental health problems, call the psychiatric crisis hotline 302-428-2118.
If you need emergency dental work, visit the emergency dental clinic at Wilmington Hospital
If you have a non-narcotic prescription, but lack the funds to pay for it, visit one of the Friendship House Day Centers with a pharmacy printout of your prescription. Although it has only limited funds for prescription assistance, Friendship House is usually able to assist clients once per year.
