How the Idaho Guide Helpline works:

If you are a guide-in-need, call or text the above number. Leave a message with your contact information and a licensed counselor will return your call within 48 hours. If needed, the counselor will help set up additional sessions via telehealth or with a provider in your area. Your call to Redside is no-cost and Redside will financially support additional sessions. If you know a guide-in-need and want advice, you can also use the helpline.

This service is available thanks to our generous donors and supporters.
