Having a Crisis?

If you are having an emergency or behavioral health crisis, please use the resources below that best apply to your situation.

911 Emergency Services

Is a life in danger? 

  • Call 911 immediately. 
  • If you’re calling 911 for mental health, substance abuse, or special needs emergencies you can request first responders that have gone through Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). CIT trained first responders understand the unique needs and sensitivities of a behavioral health emergency. CIT training helps keep the responding personnel and the person experiencing an emergency safe and make sure the correct level of care is provided as quickly as possible.
