Crisis Services in Wisconsin
The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is now available nationwide 24/7 with call, chat, or text. Wisconsin has one statewide 988 call center. County crisis lines are also available. While many mental health crises can be resolved over the phone, Wisconsin law requires counties to also provide other emergency mental health services including mobile crisis response and crisis stabilization.

services may be found at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/crisis/index.htm.
To strengthen crisis response throughout the state, Wisconsin is working towards Crisis Now, a national bestpractice framework that allows anyone in crisis, anywhere, anytime to have: 1. Someone to call; 2. Someone to respond; and 3. A safe place to go. This range of crisis services will help people get timely, and appropriate support in the least restrictive, least costly setting that serves their needs.
