Urgent Crisis Center (UCC)

Now Open!

Our walk-in Urgent Crisis Center (UCC) provides outpatient services for children and teens who are experiencing an urgent mental or behavioral health crisis, including:

  • Thoughts of suicide or self-injury
  • Feelings of depression, anxiety or hopelessness
  • Out-of-control behaviors
  • Substance misuse
  • Any mental health crisis

No appointment or referral is necessary.

While at the UCC, trained staff will:

  • Provide crisis stabilization support
  • Complete a comprehensive mental health assessment
  • Work with your family to develop a safety plan
  • Connect your child directly to additional services

This program is not an Emergency Department. If a youth needs immediate medical attention, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest hospital.

There are no beds in the UCC. Our goal is to deescalate the crisis, complete the evaluation and connect you to services in under 24 hours.

Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:00am – 11:00pm

Phone: (860) 297-0520
