Callers are put in touch with professional mental health and addictions counselors to receive immediate confidential crisis counseling, emergency support, and/or be referred to someone for ongoing help. In addition, a mobile crisis team that can travel to the site of the crisis is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Walk-in services and short-term overnight services are also available.
