home > crisis: get help now

Concerned about someone's mental health?
Start with the Maine Crisis Hotline.


When is your situation a crisis and when is it an emergency?

This can be confusing. Use the Decision Aid below to determine who to call and when.

If you’re afraid your loved one is thinking about suicide or you want to talk to someone NOW:

  • Call the Maine Mental Health Crisis Hotline at 1-888-568-1112 to connect to your closest crisis center for professional guidance, follow-up care and support.
  • Or, for a Maine emergency, call 911 and tell them it’s a mental health concern. Provide the diagnosis (if you have it) and tell them whether or not you’ve called the Maine Crisis Hotline.
