The crisis intervention/referral hotline is open every day of the year, day and night, including holidays. Professionally trained and supervised volunteers offer callers telephone support and help them to explore options that can lead to thinking through next steps. We do not offer therapy or advice, but help callers lower their anxiety and find their own solutions. Crisis counselors also provide referrals for support groups, clinicians, mental health clinics, other hotlines and a host of other community programs and services.
Response Hotline is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week (631) 751-7500.
Hear2Help Online Crisis Counseling
Since so many people find the internet a convenient and comfortable way to reach out, we offer crisis counseling online through our website. Callers can talk privately with a Response counselor about any subject and receive the same compassion, referrals, and advocacy that they would find on our hotline.
Hear2Help is available Monday through Friday, 7 PM – 11 PM.
