What to Expect
If an individual is in imminent danger, call 911. Our professionals are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide no-cost confidential assessments.
During an assessment, a licensed mental health professional will gather information from the person in crisis as well as the family, if available. The assessment professional and the on-call physician will determine the best course of treatment which might include inpatient or outpatient services, or the individual could return home with specific discharge instructions and follow-up if needed.
