* Most mental health professionals are required to ask you to call 911 in a crisis. However, there is no guarantee that your area offers mental health crisis services through their local police department. Please use caution when using this as a resource and consider alternatives when possible, especially if the individual in crisis could be a high risk of being targeted for violence by the police.
