If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call someone!

If you live in the United States and are experiencing a mental health crisis, you can call or text 988.
This line is staffed 24/7, and is available in English and Spanish.

You can also call 911 for immediate response from local first responders (typically EMT / Paramedics, Fire, and / or Highway Patrol / Police / Sheriff).  Please note that you may or may not receive assistance from someone with adequate crisis intervention training when you call 911.  Police are often known to escalate the situation.  While there is a growing movement for police agencies to partner with mental health professionals, many police are simply not qualified to engage in mental health crises. 

Depending on your situation and location, you may wish to check yourself into the Emergency Room of your local hospital.

If you are a student, you may wish to speak with your school counselor, teacher / professor, or administrator.

You may also want to reach out to a local church or other place of worship.  Many religious institutions offer free, or low-cost, faith-based counseling.  

You may also consider reach out to a trusted friend or family member.

Please call someone if you are having a mental health crisis!
