WPIC joins new county crisis network

A new comprehensive behavioral health program called the “re:solve Crisis Network” has begun providing a full range of crisis services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to all Allegheny County residents.

Designed to manage a wide range of personal crises — from feelings of loneliness, stress and depression to suicide contemplation or addiction issues — the crisis network is a partnership of the Allegheny County Department of Human Services Office of Behavioral Health, Community Care Behavioral Health and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic.

All residents of Allegheny County are eligible to use the services.

Initially, the program is providing telephone and mobile crisis services, available toll-free at 1-888/796-8226. Those seeking help can talk by phone to a trained crisis counselor or, if desired, receive a visit from mobile crisis counselors at any location.

This fall, a new facility for walk-in and overnight stay crisis services will open in Point Breeze.
