Crisis Intervention, we intervene with individuals currently in crisis by conducting phone and/or face-to-face assessments and linking them to needed services that can help stabilize them, such as a next-day appointment with a therapist. When the individual in crisis is found to require referral to a hospital we can help facilitate that as well.

We're Looking for More Resources in this State.
We are working to create an easily accessible and searchable database of community resources and organizations nationwide that offer crisis intervention services to be utilized as an alternative to calling the police. At the moment we are rapidly trying to verify leads to be posted to the site. If you know of such a resource in your area  press the contact button below or check back soon for updated resources in your neighborhood.
