Crisis Helpline Services
The 24/7 Crisis Helpline for Delaware receives calls regarding many levels of crisis, from asking for information and referral, to discussing daily struggles, to processing suicidal thoughts. We define a crisis as any moment that is overwhelming for the individual who is calling. No crisis is too small.
Along with single occurring crises, the Crisis Helpline serves as a support system for individuals who need a little extra support to get through the day. This may include individuals who are elderly, are living with mental illness, have a developmental delay, or are feeling lonely.
In addition to the Crisis Helpline, we offer the Crisis Chat, which is the same service, but in an instant messaging format.
