Crisis and emergency RESOURCES

How do I know if I or someone I care about is experiencing a psychiatric emergency?

A psychiatric emergency can be defined as expressing suicidal and/or homicidal thoughts, attempting suicide and/or homicide, untreated symptoms of psychosis (i.e. hallucinations or delusional thoughts), showing signs of becoming violent, or rapid and unusual changes in behavior that are typically out of the individual's norm.

If you believe that you or someone you care about is experiencing a psychiatric emergency, please immediately call or go to one of the crisis resources below. You or someone on your behalf may contact your BWCC therapist once you have been evaluated by a doctor or mental health professional. BWCC is not a crisis center and therefore may refer you to one of these options below if a higher level of care is needed to maintain your safety and well-being.
