It is important for clinicians to know available services for clients in crisis. It is preferable to refer clients who are experiencing a mental health emergency to a more appropriate resource than the Emergency Department when more appropriate referrals exist. Crisis Solutions of NC has been working to identify alternatives to emergency rooms for clients in crisis. Please visit their website at www.crisissolutionsnc.org for more information and resources in your local area.

NAMI NC also has a link for you to search by county for services.
