Help is available

If you're experiencing a medical or police emergency, call 911. Otherwise, the Crisis Line, (520) 622-6000, can connect you with a counselor 24/7.

What is TPD's response?

All TPD sworn personnel have completed Mental Health First Aid Training, and many have completed a 40-hour Crisis Intervention Training.

The Tucson Police Department has specialized units dedicated to helping connect people with resources: the Homeless Outreach Team, the Mental Health Support Team, and the Substance Use Resource Team.

Talk of suicide

Call the Crisis Line if someone you know has talked about suicide. They can reach out to the person by phone or in person with behavioral health professionals. They can also assess when a situation may be dangerous and call police to respond.

For behavioral health service providers

If a patient has missed an appointment and you want someone to check their welfare, call the Crisis Line and request a Crisis Mobile Team respond. If threats, violent behavior, or weapons are involved, call 911.
