Our Mission

To provide 24/7 mental health services to those in crisis in our communities.

We believe people with mental health emergencies deserve the same level of respect, care and attention as those with physical health emergencies. Crisis Response provides crisis services to anyone in the 10-county area. We deliver compassionate, person-centered, recovery-based mental health support to adults, youth, and their families in southeast Minnesota. 

We approach mental health crisis response a variety of ways:

  • Someone to call - The 24/7 crisis hotline is the first step in reaching out for help
  • Someone to respond - 24/7 mobile crisis response units for immediate intervention
  • A place to go - New 24/7 walk-in crisis center
  • A place to stay - The new center will have 16 beds for short-term stays
  • Continued support  - Follow up care coordination, prevention and education
