GET HELP

We understand that getting into therapy is important, but in some instances you need immediate assistance. 

If someone is an imminent danger to themselves, others, or has already caused harm call 911 immediately.

This can include taking pills, using a weapon, threatening harm, etc.

If someone’s life is not immediately in danger, but they need urgent assistance because of suicidal thoughts (active or passive), are having an inability to cope, or experienced a recent traumatic event call the national crisis line or the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
