Seeking Help:

Although the research team is trained to provide mental health services, we are not able to provide direct care within the scope of this program. The purpose of this program is not to provide therapy, medication management, or crisis intervention. We are, however, happy to educate, advocate, and direct you to providers that may better meet these needs.

Please note: The providers listed on our referral form are individual providers that are not contracted or affiliated with this program, nor the department. Hence, we cannot guarantee they will be available for crisis intervention or immediate services, nor are they able to provide care free of cost. 

If there is an emergency, we advise you to:  
  • Call 911 if at risk of harming self or others.  
  • Call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273- TALK (8255)
