Adult Mental Health Crisis Response Services

Immediate help for people having urgent problems with depression, panic, anxiety, delusions, or other mood or behavior disorders


Adult Mental Health Crisis Response Services can help you cope with a current crisis and stay in your home and community. A trained mental health crisis responder assesses the crisis, helps you get through the crisis, and then follows up helping you connect with longer term support and services.

If you need more help to be safe, crisis response can help to set up hospital care or to access a crisis stabilization service.

Every county in the state has an adult mental health crisis telephone number.

Most counties also provide other kinds of crisis help, like:

  • Mobile Crisis Response Services: Trained crisis responders will come to your home (or a meeting place that you choose) to help you in a crisis
  • Residential Crisis Services: Help in a facility where you can stay for a few days until the crisis is under control
  • Crisis Stabilization Services: Help you connect with other support services and gain skills to avoid future crises
