Crisis Intervention involves outreach services for individuals who are at risk of harming themselves or others. Master degreed professionals conduct nonjudgmental assessments of individuals’ current situations to ensure their physical and psychological safety and to determine disposition for treatment.

Crisis Intervention Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During normal working hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) anyone in need of emergency services may contact or appear at any of the Center’s clinics. Master degreed professionals provide an assessment and disposition. Services are provided at the clinic location or in hospitals, jails or other safe locations in the community.

After working hours and on weekends and holidays, master degreed professionals responds to crisis by phone and/or face-to-face interventions.  Community Counseling Center in conjunction with the Department of Mental Health provides an 800 Crisis Line through a regional contract between all Administrative Agents in the Southeast Region of the State and Behavioral Health Response (BHR) in St. Louis. The system, Missouri Access Crisis and Response System (MOCARS) involves emergency calls to be screened by BHR, which forwards the caller’s information to the Center’s on-call staff.  Assessment and disposition occurs in emergency rooms and law enforcement offices located in the counties of Bollinger, Cape, Madison, Perry and Ste. Genevieve Counties.
