Crisis Ministries is a twenty-four hour, seven-day a week, community agency, assessing and responding to the critical needs of the individual and family in Anderson and Pickens counties. We provide crisis intervention, suicide prevention, stabilization and education. This includes telephone crisis lines and a walk-in center providing for stabilization of immediate crisis situations, and information and referral to other community agencies. We work with other community agencies such as the Mental Health Association in Anderson County, managing housing for the mentally disabled, and with the Anderson, Oconee, Pickens, Mental Health Center, providing their after-hours crisis line. Through our Samaritan Outreach Program, we seek to enlist churches and mentors/volunteers to help provide emotional and supplemental assistance to those in crisis.
