Crisis

If you are experiencing a life-threatening situation, dial 911 immediately.   

If you are experiencing difficult or suicidal thoughts dial 211 for mobile crisis services.   

In Connecticut, mobile crisis intervention services are provided by teams of mental health workers (psychiatrists, RNs, MSWs, psychologists) who intervene in situations where an individual’s mental or emotional condition results in behavior which constitutes an imminent danger to him or herself or to another. Mobile crisis teams visit people in their homes or community sites, and others meet clients in clinics or hospital emergency rooms. Psychiatric emergency rooms and mental health facilities can provide crisis services to people who can travel to a facility. To find mobile crisis teams or a mental health facility near you, dial 211
