Crisis Prevention & Intervention

If you are in crisis please reach out for help. You are not alone. 1-301-738-2255

We all face moments of crisis, how we handle those moments can determine the path of the rest of our lives. We don’t have to face those moments alone.

Because every mind needs support, attention, and care.
