What Should You Do If You Have a Mental Health Crisis?

Start by calling your mental health provider, if you have one. Your provider is there to help you in the event of a mental health crisis. They might have an after-hours phone number. Make sure you have that phone number saved and ready to use.

If you do not have a mental health provider, call Crisis Services at 988 (available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week).

Lines for Life

Lines for Life is there to help you prevent suicide or substance abuse. Their staff and volunteers are high trained crisis intervention specialists. They are there to offer confidential help and hope to individuals and their loved ones during a crisis or when needing help for drug addiction, alcohol abuse, thoughts of suicide and other mental health issues. Although services are available to anyone in need, they are targeted to support those struggling with addiction and recovery, military service members, veterans, older adults, youth and their families.


A warmline gives you a chance to talk with people who have lived with mental health or addictions challenges. It’s another option to a crisis line. It’s ran by trained “peers,” people who are in recovery. You can call the David Romprey Oregon Warmline at 800-698-2392, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

When You Should Go to the Emergency Room

Go to the emergency room if you can’t reach your provider or crisis services or if you feel like you might harm yourself or someone else. If you’re having a medical emergency dial 911.

Make a Crisis Prevention Plan

A crisis prevention plan will help you, your support people and provider, prepare for times when life seems too hard to manage. This plan is designed to help talk about what would help when extra support or action is needed. Namaste Rx encourages you to talk with a person that understands your strengths and challenges to help make this plan. It’s best to prepare this plan when you are feeling okay about yourself and your life.

Make a plan that fits and works for you. You can fill out this plan by yourself, with a peer support person, family member, friend or mental health provider. Keep your crisis prevention plan readily available to you and your support people.

Consider having copies in several places:

  • Keep your plan where you can easily find it.
  • Give a copy to your mental health provider.
  • Give a copy to the local psychiatric crisis response team.

Cisgender: Refers to an individual whose gender identity aligns with the one typically associated with the sex assigned to them at birth.

Gender-fluid: According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a person who does not identify with a single fixed gender; of or relating to a person having or expressing a fluid or unfixed gender identity.

Genderqueer: Genderqueer people typically reject notions of static categories of gender and embrace a fluidity of gender identity and often, though not always, sexual orientation. People who identify as “genderqueer” may see themselves as being both male and female, neither male nor female or as falling completely outside these categories.

Non-binary: An adjective describing a person who does not identify exclusively as a man or a woman. Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman, somewhere in between, or as falling completely outside these categories. While many also identify as transgender, not all non-binary people do.

Transgender: Often shortened to trans. A term describing a person’s gender identity that does not necessarily match their assigned sex at birth. Other terms commonly used are female to male (or FTM), male to female (or MTF), assigned male at birth (or AMAB), assigned female at birth (or AFAB), genderqueer, and gender expansive. Transgender people may or may not decide to alter their bodies hormonally and/or surgically to match their gender identity. This word is also used as a broad umbrella term to describe those who transcend conventional expectations of gender identity or expression. Like any umbrella term, many different groups of people with different histories and experiences are often included within the greater transgender community – such groups include, but are certainly not limited to, people who identify as transsexual, genderqueer, gender variant, gender diverse, and androgynous.

Two-Spirit (also two spirit or, occasionally, twospirited): A modern, pan-Indian, umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans to describe certain people in their communities who fulfill a traditional third-gender (or other gender-variant) ceremonial role in their cultures.
