Finding Help in a Crisis

Are you or someone you know in a crisis? Do you need help immediately? To determine if this is a crisis, answer these questions honestly:

Have I, my friend, or a loved one... 

  • Been thinking or talking about, actively planning or attempting suicide?

  • Been unable to manage basic self care (eating, bathing, dressing, etc)?

  • Been in, or currently in, a dangerous abusive situation? If children are involved, are they in danger?

  • Exhibited bizarre behavior, heard voices, seen things that aren't there or expressed uncontrollable anger?

  • Abused alcohol or drugs to a degree that causes imminent danger?

  • If you answered "yes" to one or more questions, call any resource listed below:
