Mental Health Crisis ‘Hotline’ Available

1-800-652-0562 Mental Health Crisis ‘Hotline’ Available

crisishotlinePotter County Human Services has established a toll-free telephone service available 24/7 for anyone in need of mental health services. 

The “hotline” at 1-800-652-0562 was established to provide prompt, professional and coordinated services to those experiencing a mental health emergency, needing someone to talk to about a personal crisis, or feeling depressed or suicidal. 

Potter County Human Services has contracted with Clarion Psychiatric Center to assure a qualified first point of contact for callers. After an assessment, the caller is then directed to specific service providers, which could range from law enforcement and drug/alcohol intervention to child protective services and emergency medical personnel. 

Referrals can also be made for homelessness, eating disorders, domestic violence services, in-patient mental health hospitalization and suicide prevention services. 

Potter County residents are advised to place the toll-free number near each telephone in their homes. Anyone with questions should contact Melissa Gee at 1-800-800-2560 or 544-7315.
