Toll-Free Numbers for Health Information

These toll-free numbers provide health-related information, education, and support. They DO NOT diagnose or recommend treatment for any disease.

photo of a toll-free operatorSome of the toll-free numbers use recorded messages. Others offer personalized counseling and referrals. Most toll-free numbers provide educational materials. (Some organizations may charge handling fees.)

Most toll-free numbers can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week unless otherwise noted.

This directory is organized into 3 categories:

  • Crisis Intervention. Organizations that provide crisis assistance.
  • Rare Disorders. Organizations that provide information about diseases and disorders that affect less than 1 percent of the population.
  • Professional Organizations. Organizations that offer information about health professions (such as nursing or counseling) or health topics (such as blindness or lymphoma).

This directory is compiled every year by the National Health Information Center, which is a service of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), Office of Public Health and Science, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
