Youth Villages, Mental Health Cooperative, Frontier Health, and Helen Ross McNabb provide crisis services for children and youth in Tennessee. Emergency counselors (triage specialists) handle calls 24/7 through their regional hotline and determine an appropriate response.

Throughout the state, specialized Crisis Services staff assess and evaluate children and youth, up to age 18, who are experiencing a psychiatric emergency.

If a child or youth under age 18  is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call the statewide crisis line or the regional phone number in your area.  Your call will be routed to a crisis specialist for help.

24/7 STATEWIDE CRISIS LINE:  855-274-7471 (855-CRISIS-1)
