Crisis Care Resources

All of us struggle with emotional or psychological challenges, and when we do, we should work with licensed mental health professionals. When a crisis hits, we can lean on our therapists to support us, and they will guide us through it, including seeking out higher levels of care if necessary.


However, relying on crisis support services becomes necessary if we do not have a therapist. If you ever feel unstable or unsafe or concerned that you might hurt yourself or others, it's time to reach out for help. Our goal is to help you identify resources you might need in a time of crisis.
