Crisis Support

Thursday, February 6, 2020, 1:00 PM

Crisis Support Services of Alameda County (CSS) was founded in 1966 on the humanistic idea that skilled intervention by non-professionals can help people in emotional crisis. Our program reflects this commitment to volunteer service; in FY2017-2018, 168 volunteers, 32 mental health interns, and 16 paid shift supervisors handled 65,729 crisis line calls, providing short-term intervention and referrals to callers struggling with a variety of life problems. Our suicide prevention center is part of an international movement; centers exist on every continent and in most major cities throughout the world. We are accredited by the American Association of Suicidology and we are a member of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.   Crisis Support Services of Alameda County offers support to people of all ages and backgrounds during times of crisis. We work to prevent suicide and depression during times of difficulty by offering supportive counseling in a variety of settings.  We believe that everyone needs help at some point in their lives. It is easy to feel alone with your difficult emotions or life experience. You may be concerned about a friend or loved one who is dealing with suicidal thoughts or feelings. Our crisis line counselors are here to help. We don’t give advice. Instead, we provide a listening space or sounding board where you can share openly and receive warmth and care. You can reach our crisis line at 1-800-309-2131 24-  Hours a day.
