In medically acute or life-threatening situations that need an immediate response please call 911.

It is important to tell the operator that you are facing a Behavioral Health Emergency (Psychiatric Crisis) and request a CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) trained officer skilled at helping a mentally ill person in crisis

If it is safe to do so another option is to go to your nearest emergency room.
