To our Community Members

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Kennebec Behavioral Health wants to be sure that families remain aware of the services provided by the Maine State Crisis Line. If you, or anyone you know, is experiencing a mental health or behavioral crisis, please call 1-888-568-1112.  As a reminder, in light of the potential strain on Emergency Departments due to COVID-19, we encourage families and individuals to seek crisis intervention by calling the crisis line from where they are rather than going to the Emergency Departments.  Mobile Crisis responders can meet individuals via telehealth and in person as needed in the location of the individual's or family's choosing.
