Help in a Crisis
If you are a current client and have needs that can’t wait until your scheduled appointment, please call or text us at (336) 722-7266 and we will try to find a better solution for you. We keep urgent times reserved each week for people in crisis, and have an after-hours emergency line staffed 24/7 by a clinician at (336) 525-9090.
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. We also offer dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) which is designed to help people build crisis survival skills.
Hospitals and day programs:
If you or your relative needs in-home assessment for a psychiatric emergency, you can call (888) 581-9988 or (336) 607-8523 Ext: 147 for DayMark’s public-funded services in Forsyth County.
Most counties in North Carolina also have mobile crisis services for in-home assessment, a full list is available here.
