Get Help in a Crisis

Minnesota has mobile mental health crisis teams available in every county, open 24/7. These crisis teams will work with you over the phone to assess what’s happening and determine the best next step, which may include sending the mobile team to your location.

Mental Health Minnesota has a database of mental health crisis teams on our website to make it easier for you to find what you need, regardless of what county you’re in. You can use our search tool to find the crisis team closest to you, searching by county.

You can also call or text 988 to be connected to the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, also available 24/7. Lifeline centers can work with you if you are experiencing a mental health crisis, connecting you to additional resources or crisis response as needed.
