We do not provide crisis intervention via e-mail. If you or someone you know is suicidal now, call 269-381-HELP (in Kalamazoo, Allegan, Van Buren, Berrien or Cass counties) or your local crisis center. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK.

You need to talk to a person, not look for answers in an FAQ. Call us now at 269-381-HELP, anytime day or night. We'll answer.
