What To Expect When You Call Our 24/7 Crisis Line

March 16, 2021

Wyandot BHN’s Crisis Line is available for anyone to call 24/7. Help from a caring professional is just a phone call away.

“If you’re just feeling overwhelmed or you’ve had a bad day, it’s okay to call the crisis line,” says Wyandot Center Executive Director Christine Swenson. “That’s what it’s there for.”

No matter what time you call – day or night – someone is waiting on the other side of the line, ready to help you.

When you call, a mental health professional will answer the phone and take the time to talk to you about whatever it is you are struggling with in that moment. They can also provide some ideas and tips to help you manage the emotions or experiences you’re dealing with. They may also provide a referral to additional resources that might be able to help.

The crisis line is meant to provide in-the-moment, over-the-phone support. If you need to talk to someone immediately, you can call 913-788-4200 any time day or night and speak to a mental health professional.

*If you’re looking to start services, schedule an appointment or speak to your provider, it is best to call Wyandot BHN directly during business hours, rather than calling the crisis line.
