What to Do In an Emergency
Call 988 if you or a loved one is in immediate danger. Notify the operator that it is a psychiatric emergency and ask for a CIT-trained 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 988 or 1-800-273-TALK (8255), the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It is a 24-hour, toll-free, confidential suicide prevention hotline. The 988 number will route you to local call centers, but if you would like to call a local number, call the Baltimore Crisis Response hotline at 410-433-5175. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
