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.

No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; and there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available based on family size and income
