Identifying a Mental Health Crisis

Crisis Intervention and Urgent (non-emergent) Mental Health Care

Mental Health Facts:

At least 6% of adult ER visits are due to mental health complaints, as well as 7% of pediatric visits.

According to the World Health Organization, there’s been a 13% increase in mental health conditions in the past decade. In people ages 15 to 29 years old, suicide is the second leading cause of death.

Signs an individual may experience a mental health crisis might include:

  • difficulty in functioning or being unable to function (e.g., it’s hard to get out of bed, go to work, or do daily tasks
  • having challenges or an inability to take care of your hygiene, such as brushing your teeth, changing clothes, and bathing
  • intense or sudden changes in mood
  • psychosis such as hallucinations or delusions
  • paranoia
  • feeling increasingly agitated, angry, or violent
  • suicidal thoughts or making plans
  • harming yourself or self-medicating
  • isolating or withdrawing from others

If you’re worried about being hospitalized due to a mental condition, UCC is an option readily available to you. Despite the usefulness of a hospital stay during a crisis, individuals may occasionally fear the stigma of being ‘committed’ or the financial consequences. Hospitalization occurs when individuals pose an immediate danger to themselves or others. If you’re in a crisis, but not in danger, we provide outpatient and telehealth options that can give you the assistance you need.
