What Help Can the Crisis Call Line Provide?
There are several options that a crisis counselor could provide or recommend for your child.
- Phone Support
The crisis line provides interim telephone support after hours or in-between visits with your primary therapist. The therapist will work with your child to support current safety plans.
- Referral to Doctor or Therapist
If the crisis counselor determines your child is not in an immediate crisis, they could recommend you schedule an appointment with your pediatrician or therapist.
- Mobile Crisis Team
The Mobile Crisis Team is a psychiatric emergency team serving anyone within Monroe County. Our team of professionals will conduct a psychiatric evaluation for you or your family in your home, place of employment, school or any other location in Monroe County. The Mobile Crisis service is NOT for anyone at immediate risk of suicide or urgent safety concerns such as overdoses, violence toward others, or medical emergencies.
- Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP)
The CPEP Emergency Unit is part of the Medical Emergency Department. This unit decides if hospital intervention is needed for the patient, and if so, the patient is admitted to this locked unit. All individuals seen in the CPEP Emergency Unit are evaluated by a psychiatrist, in addition to psychiatric nursing and clinical social work staff members.
If Your Child is in Immediate Danger of Hurting Themselves or Others...
Go to CPEP immediately.
