If there is an acute crisis and you feel the person is irrational, out of control or maybe a danger to themselves or others, call: Police Emergency Number:  Dial 911  

Tell them it is a mental health emergency and that you would like a CCIT or CIT-trained officer.

They will usually take the person to the Emergency Room at Cape Cod Hospital where they will be evaluated. If it appears to be a mental health issue, the person may be sent to the “purple unit” for further assessment. At that point, they may be hospitalized either at the Cape Cod Psychiatric Unit or another hospital.  Another alternative is Partial Hospitalization which has the benefits of hospitalization (medication review, group therapy, etc.) but patients do not stay overnight.


If the person is willing to get help and:

If the person has insurance other than Mass Health, call the Behavioral Health Crisis Team at Cape Cod Hospital, 800-513-4728
If the person has Mass Health or no insurance call, Bay Cove Human Services, 1-833-229-2683
