What to Expect

You will need to inform the front desk personnel that you are experiencing a mental health crisis. You will be asked to complete brief paperwork to help us understand your situation. One of our mental health counselors will meet with you to assess your immediate needs and may refer you to additional resources or services as needed. Walk-in crisis visits are addressed on a first come, first served basis. You may be asked to wait for an available crisis counselor.

If you are experiencing a crisis outside of normal business hours (Monday thru Sunday, 5:00 p.m. thru 8:00 a.m.), you can reach a crisis counselor by telephone including weekends, holidays, and breaks.
