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.
Starting on June 18th everyone in Suffolk County will be required to dial all numbers using 10 digit dialing (area code plus number). To call Response use 1-(area code)-number even if you are in the 631 area code yourself. For more information see:

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.
