Crisis Outreach and Support Team (COAST)
Get help and stay safe in a crisis. If you are in crisis, we can help – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our crisis professionals will speak to you by phone to provide support and help you make a plan to stay safe. Our mobile team of crisis professionals and specially trained plain clothes police officers may also visit you where you are to provide support and make a plan to keep you safe. We may also provide ongoing telephone support and connect you to others who can help. We call this our Crisis Outreach and Support Team (COAST).
COAST is not an emergency response unit. If your situation is a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
