Our Facebook page link.

Cumberland County Crisis Response (CCCR) is available 24/7 to any resident of Cumberland County. An individual can access crisis services by:

  • Phoning 1.888.568.1112 (Voice or TDD) 24 hours a day

  • Walking in to the Crisis Response Center at 190 Lancaster Street.

Individuals experiencing a mental health crisis have immediate access to a team of professionals who are trained to respond to mental health crises 24 hours/day. Individuals in crisis can be seen at the location of their choice as long as the environment is safe for both the client and the mobile outreach clinician. Such locations include the client's home, emergency departments, other treatment facilities, or at the crisis center.

Triage through the crisis center allows quick response to mental health crises, short-term treatment to allow people to stabilize outside of a hospital setting, and facilitated access to emergency room services or hospitalization when necessary.
