We acknowledge with great sadness the closing of Crisis Connection on June 30, 2018, after 49½ years of serving Minnesotans. (Note: Walk-In Counseling Center’s availability is not affected by the closing of Crisis Connection.) The Crisis Connection telephone number was answered 24-hours per day, 7 days per week and served about 55,000 callers per year statewide. Many Walk-In volunteers have also served at Crisis Connection over the years.
As of June 30, 2018, the single statewide Crisis Connection telephone numbers (612-379-6363 and 866-379-6363) will no longer be staffed to provide personal counseling or referrals for callers who need mental-health related assistance. Callers are being referred to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. In addition, if you or someone you love is in crisis and needs to find appropriate resources, the following crisis services organizations can help callers by phone. The county services are the official county crisis outreach team that can help anyone who is in that county at the time of their crisis, regardless of their permanent residence.
Walk-In Counseling Center is also available five days a week at several locations in west and east metro. Hours and locations are listed on the left side of our website.
