Crisis Line and Referral Service

Mental Health Crisis Response Services - Adult

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

Description

Adult Mental Health Crisis Response Services can help during a mental health crisis. Crisis response can help you to cope with a current crisis and to stay in your home and community. A trained mental health crisis responder assesses the crisis, helps to cope with the crisis, and follows up to help connect to 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 bed.

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

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

  • Mobile Crisis Response Services: Help from trained crisis responders who 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 service: Services after Crisis Response to help you to connect with other support and skills to avoid future crises
