Crisis Resources

2020_DSS_News

During times of crisis, an individual may feel alone, overwhelmed, or lack the support needed to overcome challenges they are facing. Pitt County Department of Social Services wants to provide you with links to crisis services within the community provided through Trillium Health Resources. Trillium helps people connect with services for mental health, substance use and intellectual/developmental disabilities throughout eastern NC. This resource hub embraces North Carolina's Crisis Solutions Initiative to ensure people know where to get help quickly and effectively rather than going to a hospital emergency room when experiencing a behavioral health or intellectual/developmental disability crisis.
