Crisis Intervention

Help when you need it

Crisis is unpredictable and often caused by escalated emotions, traumatic events, or relationship stressors. Our crisis team responds to calls from community members, schools, law enforcement, and anyone who requires immediate support for behavioral distress or a mental health issue. In addition to de-escalation and counseling services, the crisis team can provide a brief assessment for intake into further services, as well as peer support and resource/referral information.

Help how you need it

Our Crisis services are grant funded and provided at no cost to you or your family. Our team specializes in the following:
  • De-escalating and supporting an individual or family in crisis
  • Serving as a liaison to police, emergency departments, mental health facilities, and providers
  • Providing risk assessments and safety planning
  • Following up with support to individuals and families after a crisis
  • Offering information about community resources
  • Identifying alternatives to hospitalization when possible
  • Facilitating voluntary or involuntary hospitalization when appropriate

Help where you need it

Crisis intervention is available 24 hours a day through telephone, walk-in, and mobile services.
Mobile crisis services are provided in the community and at the location where the crisis is occurring. Similar to walk-in services at our main Creekside location, mobile crisis services offer a risk assessment, brief crisis intervention, safety planning, referral, and follow-up. If you need help after hours, our main office line or Direct Crisis Line provides telephonic support with the ability to deploy on-site services if needed.
