What to Do In an Emergency
Call 911 if you or a loved one is in immediate danger. Notify the operator that it is a psychiatric emergency and ask for a BEST police officer, who has received specialized training to respond to mental health emergencies from NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore and our community partners.
If you are in crisis or need to talk, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255), the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It is a 24-hour, toll-free, confidential suicide prevention hotline.
