A free mental health hotline and mobile crisis intervention specializing in helping children is now available to all Sullivan County parents and guardians.

The hotline number is 845-701-3777

The Children’s Mobile Crisis Intervention service is free and operates nights, weekends and holidays providing immediate assistance to families  when a child is experiencing a behavioral or emotional crisis. A clinician is available to provide guidance and support by phone or in the home.

Here’s how it works:  A certified Social Worker is available by phone to provide guidance and support. If more assistance is needed, the Social Worker will travel to the home and provide a one-on-one intervention. When possible, the Social Worker arrives quickly and quietly as to not cause a disturbance.  The program is hosted by The Arc Sullivan-Orange Counties.

To be eligible, the child must be:

  • Under the age of 18
  • Residing in Sullivan County with a parent or guardian
  • Experiencing an emotional or behavioral crisis

In addition to the immediate intervention, families receive  follow up support and recommendations or referrals for local services or treatment in Sullivan County.
