  • NC START

distressed_200x175.pngWe also require Network Providers to develop Person-Centered Crisis Prevention Plans with persons they serve and to be accountable for their first-responder roles and responsibilities.

Any person may receive crisis and emergency services in eastern North Carolina for mental health, substance abuse, and intellectual/developmental disabilities issues. Regardless of where you live, work or go to school, you can call our toll-free 24-Hour Access to Care line 1.877.685.2415 at any time. A trained person answering the phone will connect you with services to address your situation.


Mobile Crisis Teams

Mobile Crisis Teams work for Network Providers who contract with Trillium. Teams are made up of experienced clinical staff well-trained in crisis prevention and stabilization techniques. When a person experiences a behavioral health crisis, a member of the Mobile Crisis Team will respond and meet the person wherever it may be--at home, at school, at work or in the community. If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis, please call the Mobile Crisis Team serving your county listed below.
