Hotlines That Avoid Police*

National

Local

*These hotlines can provide alternatives to police intervention and avoid the use of police in most cases. Some utilize other first responders such as mobile crisis units with mental health professionals, who are mandated reporters. It’s always a good idea to ask all hotlines about policies before disclosing information that could lead to an involuntary intervention.

Mental Health Crisis Response via 911 or 311

*These city-based police diversion efforts attempt to route mental health crisis calls away from police but may include first responders such as mobile crisis units with mental health professionals. They may or may not include a co-responding police officer and there is a possibility of forced hospitalization, but they are more user-centered.
