Who we are:
Life can be challenging for those who are struggling with mental health, substance use, trauma, violence or other difficulties that affect their emotional well-being. In times of crisis, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed and alone. Whether it is you or someone you are concerned about, our Helpline is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help during these challenging times.
Our Crisis Team works closely with families, adults, children and adolescents who are experiencing a crisis or simply need to talk. We are community-based and our goal is to listen, identify how to resolve the crisis and help you regain a sense of control.
We will listen. We will work with you to help you through the issue(s) you are struggling with. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis or needs to talk, the Crisis Team serving Clinton County is here.
The Crisis Team operates locally Monday- Friday from 8:30am-7:30pm (All calls received after hours will be answered by on-call services).
