Who to call

In an emergency, GO straight to the emergency department at your nearest hospital or call 911.

If you call 911 wait for help to come.
Another option is to call 988 for a mental health crisis team.

If you are supporting someone in crisis and you think you can do so safely, take the person to the nearest
hospital emergency department, otherwise call 911.

If you want advice in a suicide crisis you could also call 988.

If you don't want to call 988 to speak to someone, don't fool yourself. Just thinking about suicide is enough to call 988.

This number is especially for you. Talk to someone who is trained and willing to speak with you. Your call it important to them.

And if you are helping a loved one and you know the situation is looking bad, then YOU make the call. Whatever you do, call 988 or go to the Emergency Room at any hospital, or call 911.
