Call or Text a Crisis Line

A crisis line offers a free, confidential phone or text messaging connection to a trained crisis counselor, usually staffed 24 hours a day. Crisis counselors work to assess the caller’s level of danger to him/herself or others and determine whether the situation calls for immediate on-the-scene help.

If immediate help is not required, the crisis line counselor will stay on the line as long as necessary to provide emotional support and discuss potential plans of action to resolve the crisis moment. Outcomes may involve helping an individual formulate a safety plan and get connected to appropriate resources for follow-up counseling services and emergency assistance, if needed.

Mobile crisis units provide on-site response to mental health emergency situations. Usually available 24 hours a day, a mobile crisis unit is dispatched within one to two hours to the caller's location, or sooner if a high level of danger to self or others is detected. Upon arrival, the mobile crisis team—usually comprised of clinical professionals or trained para-professionals—evaluates the situation and conducts a clinical assessment of the person in crisis. Often, the individual receives brief on-site counseling and assessment and is transported or connected to appropriate local resources.
