Mental health treatment is available throughout NYC and is accessible to you. Although the payment structure, wait times, and the treatment settings do vary based on your resources, it is important to not get discouraged. Seek treatment if you need it.
If you need immediate help for yourself or someone else in a crisis, please call 1-800-LIFENET (1-800-543-3638), a referral line for people in crisis. They can help to get someone to your home / apartment through mobile crisis teams and ambulances. They can also help you to identify a provider in your area. Alternatively, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, harming themselves, or harming others, they need to be seen immediately. Please call 911 or go to your local emergency room. From there, you will be assessed and treated.
