Crisis Services

Valeo’s Crisis Center is open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Anyone who is experiencing a crisis can walk in anytime day or night to meet with a crisis clinician. Crisis Clinicians can provide crisis counseling, assess the need for additional support services, assist in facilitating psychiatric hospitalization, and screen for state hospitalization. The crisis department is also available to provide community education on suicide intervention and stress management.

Crisis Diversion Services

Crisis Diversion serves individuals experiencing severe mental illness and focuses on interventions, symptom management, health and wellness, medication management, and coordination of community resources.
