Although most crises are short-term, the anxiety they create can push people towards impulsive solutions. Those often back-fire, as it usually takes time to develop a good plan for a crisis.
Crisis Solutions of North Carolina has a website to organize your crisis response options by county.
Crisis Lines For 24/7 Support
In-Home Emergency Assessment
If you or your relative needs in-home assessment for a psychiatric emergency, your county mental health center may be able to send a treatment team to assess the situation. This is usually a better option than the police.
Non-Hospital Based Partial, Intensive Outpatient Programs and Overnight
These programs offer group and individual therapy 3-5 days a week. They are a good option if you do not need overnight (hospital) services but are having significant problems with everyday living, such as getting to work or getting out of bed.
Overnight Hospital Programs
Local hospitals offer 24/7 assessments, and it’s not always in the busy emergency room. Several of these centers will assess you in a calmer setting that is more like a private office, such as Old Vineyard, Novant, and Moses Cone. These assessments may lead to hospital admission or to a daily group program, which most hospitals also offer.
These hospitals offer 24 hour assessment through their medical emergency rooms
