Be Well Crisis Helpline
Individuals can access the Be Well Crisis Helpline by dialing 2-1-1, entering their zip code, and following the prompts for the Be Well Crisis Helpline to reach one of our Crisis Specialists.
Crisis Specialists focus on listening to the reason for the call while asking questions to explore what coping skills and personal support are already in place. During the conversation, the Crisis Specialist works with the individual to create a plan that may include providing linkage to local on-going mental health support, local community resources, identifying personal social supports and coping skills.
After the conversation, if an individual realizes they may need a new resource, or have a new situation that needs support, one may call back 24/7.
