Toll - Free Mental Health Crisis Response Line

1-800-635-8008 or 320-253-5555 (locally)
When a phone conversation does not effectively assist individuals in crisis with immediate stressors, crisis staff offer a face-to-face visit. This mobile team provides a variety of community-based mental health crisis services to children and adults, offering in-person intervention and assessment.
Whenever requested, the Crisis Response Team works alongside law enforcement in the field. The team performs several services that can include suicide assessments, safety planning, and coping skills education. Appropriate follow-up referrals for additional services are also made by the team to ensure stability for the individual in crisis.
After a mobile crisis visit, crisis stabilization services are available to help those who may benefit from them. These services are available for 14 days after an initial visit for children (under age 18) and 30 days after an initial visit for adults. The focus is on continuing stabilization, ongoing help, coordinating supports, following up on referrals, and reviewing learned skills.
Qualifications for Services
The Crisis Response Team travels to homes or community locations within Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, and Wright counties (if someone lives outside this region, the individual is connected to the appropriate crisis services in their area).
