volunteers make a difference!
As our community continues to grow and change, MHA Crisis Center is growing and changing to meet the needs of our community. The mission and the basic services remain constant: to provide free and confidential crisis intervention, suicide prevention, and referral information through trained volunteers to those in need – any problem, any time.
