Where to go locally in a crisis:
- You can go to any Emergency Room and get evaluated by an attending psychiatrist.
- You can also call Montgomery County Mobile Crisis
- If you are already working with a therapist or psychologist, be sure to call them immediately. However, many do not have the 24/7 access that all of the above resources have. So, after leaving them a message, be sure to access the above resources.
