Youth Emergency Services

For children experiencing a mental health or behavioral crisis

Our Youth Emergency Services team provides services to children (under 21) who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis with a mobile, face-to-face response. Our team can meet with youth and their families at one of our community-based locations or we can travel to homes, schools, and other locations with the goal of avoiding a hospital emergency room visit and unnecessary hospitalizations.

Our team can remain involved with the family for up to a week for continued crisis intervention and to help the family connect with on-going behavioral health services and supports.

Youth Emergency Services are available to children under the age or 21, regardless of their insurance plan, including those who are uninsured.
