CMSAC has been experiencing a high volume of calls on our crisis line. While we strive to provide high quality advocacy services in a timely matter, we realize some of our callers might be put on hold for longer periods of time before getting connected to an advocate. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have on our callers. We truly care and are here to listen! You WILL be connected to an advocate, it just might take a little longer.

If you cannot wait or your safety is at risk, you can call:
– 911 (for all emergency or safety concerns)
– National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255
