Taking Action

If you think your child is in immediate danger, it’s an emergency, and you need to act quickly to keep everyone safe:

Call 911 or a local crisis line, or go to the nearest emergency room. Stay with your child.

Tips for Calling 911:

  • Tell them it’s a mental health crisis involving a child. Some responders are trained for this.
  • Ask if there’s a team that specializes in helping kids.
  • Give as much information as you can.
  • No Immediate Danger.
  • If your child isn’t in immediate danger, and you feel you can handle the situation, consider these steps.

Make a safe and supportive space for your child to talk about their feelings. Listen and let them know you’re there to help. Ask questions to understand how they’re feeling.

Contact their psychiatrist or therapist if they’re already in treatment. They know your child and can give guidance.

If they’re not in treatment, they’ll need a mental health assessment. It can be tough to find child mental health services, but your regular doctor can offer guidance or referrals.

Reach out to crisis intervention services like Crisis Text Line or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for support and resources.

Create a plan for handling future emergencies, including ways to keep other kids in your home safe.
