Montgomery County Providing Free Emergency Mental Health Services

Free crisis services are available 24 hours a day, all year round for Montgomery County residents in need.

The county’s Crisis Center has the Mobile Crisis Team, which provides emergency evaluations for individuals experiencing mental health distress.

According to the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services officials, the program also has four crisis beds as an alternative to hospitalization for those who are uninsured or are insured within the public mental health system.
