How To Get Help

Unfortunately, people in crisis too often wind up in emergency rooms, jail, or back on the streets, without getting the help they need. That's why we’ve developed crisis response services available 24 hours a day, everyday. 

The crisis hotline 1-844-274-7472 is available immediately to residents. Counselors aid callers by stabilizing their mental health crisis over the phone, offering referrals for further support, and dispatching mobile crisis response units for additional in-person care if needed.

The walk-in Southeast Regional Crisis Center (SERCC) is available 24/7 for face-to-face crisis intervention and short-term residential stays for adults and youth (ages 10-18). By referral or walk-in basis, SERCC is a welcoming and safe place to get the mental health help you need.

Start by calling the crisis hotline at 1-844-274-7472.
