Crisis Response & Services

Clinical Support in a Crisis

The Emergency Services and Open Access Department at Newport Mental Health provides a range of specialized clinical and support services and front-line community work for those experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. To connect with us, you can:


Mobile Crisis Response

Our Emergency Services Department is fully staffed 24/7/365 with mobile crisis clinicians specially trained to help those experiencing a psychiatric crisis. We come to you — at school, at home, or at another community space.  You can call for yourself or others; we provide:

Open Access

Setting an appointment can feel like a monumental task. Instead, we provide the space for you to decide “I’ll just walk in today.” This leads to an immediate connection with a provider, which increases the likelihood of longer-term engagement.

Post-Crisis Stabilization

All individuals and families who receive crisis services, whether in-person or over the phone, also receive post-crisis stabilization services. This program allows our Emergency Services staff to fill the gap between crisis and connection to longer-term care. We help our clients, new and existing, navigate the systems that can be challenging to take on alone. Crisis stabilization can include:
