Prince George’s County Crisis Services

Hotline: 301-429-2185
 

Affiliate Santé Group prides itself in offering dynamic, comprehensive and tailored crisis services to the specific needs of the community. We are mental health first responders for those individuals or groups who are experiencing a mental health crisis. We offer emergency psychological assessment, immediate intervention for individuals, family and community crisis events.

Although typically we assist persons with mental health, developmental disabilities, or substance abuse issues, we also can be utilized to help individuals and families or communities overwhelmed in a situational crisis; such as a victim of crime, hostage situation, witness to violence or fatal or multiple injury scenes, post homicide or suicide.

Crisis is very personal. If you feel that you are in crisis, for whatever reason, call us.

Following our initial comprehensive crisis support, we remain involved until the crisis is resolved or until appropriate support is established.

We utilize services databases and resources, together with established relationships with local providers, to facilitate a rapid connection with other appropriate resources that may be beneficial.
