Crisis services are typically needed in situations such as these:
- I am having thoughts of suicide and/or I am not sure I can keep myself safe.
- I recently intentionally physically self-injured enough to require medical attention.
- I am having thoughts of harming someone else and may act on them.
- I am hearing voices or seeing things that no one else sees or hears.
- I have recently gone two or more days without any sleep and do not feel tired
- I have recently been physically or sexually assaulted or threatened with bodily harm.
- I believe my life is in danger.
- Someone I know (e.g., a friend, family member) is in a life-threatening situation.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the local emergency room.
