What is a Crisis?

“Crisis” can mean different things to different people. A crisis could be a major loss—the death of a loved one, a divorce or a serious illness. Or it could be a series of smaller problems that have compounded and become overwhelming. A crisis is any stress or pressure that has become too great for you to cope with alone.
Throughout the South Central Behavioral Health Region, we de-escalate, stabilize, counsel, and link individuals to mental health services through our 24 hour crisis hotline 365 days per year. Your call will be answered by people who work for agencies that that have been accredited by the American Association of Suicidology.

What is Text and Chat Support?

Foundation 2 understands that speaking on the phone does not meet the needs of everyone experiencing crisis. To better meet our clients’ needs, we have expanded our array of crisis response services for those facing immediate crisis. These services are available at no cost to residents in your county.
