Local & National Resources for Mental Health Emergencies
If you are in danger or in a life-threatening situation, please call 911 immediately.
If you need to speak with someone about what you are experiencing right away, please call one of the below resources immediately!
If you are in an urgent situation, and your normal support system is unable to assist you, during reasonable hours you may call your therapist on the personal number provided to you. If you do not reach your therapist, and you need to speak with a Westside clinician, you may try Dr. Eugster at (608) 335-8286.
Please remember, psychotherapy is not an emergency procedure. It always takes time to resolve things, even crises. It is important to respect the boundaries of your therapist’s personal time. If you are struggling, writing down your feelings to share with your therapist can have a very calming effect.
Please let your therapist know when you are in difficulty, and s/he will contact you as soon as possible, and may be able to get you in for an early session.
