Do You or Someone You Know Need Help with a Crisis?
CALL 911 if this is a medical or life-threatening emergency.
If you need the police, ask for a CIT officer. They have received extra training in handling these situations.
If this is NOT a medical or life-threatening emergency, look in the directory below for resources in your county.
Behavioral health crises can be serious but most do not require a visit to a hospital emergency department. Using other specialized crisis services may connect you more quickly to ongoing resources to support your recovery.
North Carolina’s publicly funded crisis services may be used by anyone regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. These services are managed by agencies called Local Management Entities/Managed Care Organizations (LME/MCOs). Unless you are in a life-threatening emergency, call your LME/MCO’s 24-hour toll-free number (accessible through the dropdown menu above). The staff answering will help you find the right services for your specific needs.
