Mental Health and Counseling

If you feel you are in crisis, please call the free, 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1.800.273.TALK (8255) or chat with them now at crisischat.org.

2-1-1 Community Resource Navigation Specialists can work with you to find information about counseling, support groups and other forms of mental health assessment and treatment. Also included are hotline and in-person resources for those experiencing an immediate psychiatric crisis or thinking about harming themselves or others.

From one-on-one to group, in person to over the phone, outpatient to inpatient, there are many types of mental health services available, most of which are offered through a variety of different settings and methods to best suit the needs and preferences of the patient.

Depending on a patient's level of need, a psychiatric assessment is sometimes necessary to determine the level of care a person requires, and whether hospitalization or prescription medication may be necessary.

Through general counseling, a trained professional works with a person, either alone or in a group, to talk through issues that are negatively affecting their life. There are also support groups, where a number of individuals who share common circumstances get together to talk and provide each other with peer support.

Some treatment programs are aimed at helping victims of crime or abuse recover from the effects of past or recent trauma, while other services exist to provide immediate intervention in cases where a person is at risk of causing harm to themselves or others.

2-1-1's Community Resource Navigation Specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days to assist you in finding the best community resources to fit your needs.
