Outreach is not a crisis center and office phones are managed Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.  We respond to emails and phone calls during normal business hours.  Calling your local police department at 9-1-1 is always an option if you or someone you know is experiencing a physical or mental health emergency.  If you or your child is having a crisis and you are not sure what to do here are some options for you to use.
