If you or a person you are concerned about is experiencing a psychological emergency, you may request a crisis appointment.
This is similar to going to the ER for a physical health emergency. The following are examples of psychological emergencies:
- It is your current intention or plan to attempt suicide
- It is your current intention or plan to inflict bodily harm on someone
- Your life is currently in danger (due to domestic violence, recent homelessness, or alcohol and/or other drug withdrawal)
- Within the past week, you experienced a physical or sexual assault, or another type of significant trauma
- Within the past week, you have been hearing or seeing things that others do not
- Within the past 2 weeks, you were released from an inpatient psychiatric facility
Crisis counseling for mental health emergencies is available Monday-Friday 8:30am - 5:00pm. Please inform our office staff if you need to be seen immediately. For after-hours emergencies, call one of the numbers below or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
