Our Crisis Support Advocates are caring, compassionate members of our community who saw a need and were moved to meet it. They are trained to de-escalate and intervene in moments of crisis, empower and empathize, respect confidentiality and anonymity, use active listening skills, and provide community resources.
As always, if you or someone you know is in crisis, call: 360-586-2800
Teen / Youth Line: 360-586-2777
We provide compassionate support and resources to empower those in crisis every hour of every day.
We do this by:
- Answering a volunteer-powered Crisis Line, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
- Strengthening individual resilience through crisis intervention, resources, and referrals.
- Raising awareness of and expanding access to community services.
- Showing respect, empathy and compassion to all.
- Training our community to prevent suicide among seniors, adults and youth.
- Offering inclusive volunteer opportunities to members of the community.
What We Do
The clinic provides a 24-hour 7-day a week service to anyone who calls, offering crisis intervention and emotional support, as well as information and referrals.
All of our trainings provide the essentials of understanding crisis and the process of de-escalation. We will combine any of our modules to meet your needs. We will also add coached practice time (roleplays) for a more interactive training or to focus on specific issues.
Substance Use Disorder Services
The Thurston County Substance Use Disorder Program coordinates services for Thurston and Mason County residents who are chemically dependent. Services are available to low income individuals and persons with no income who receive state entitlements (i.e., medical coupons, SSI, etc.). Sliding fee scales may apply based on income.
The generosity of people just like you is what enables the Crisis Clinic of Thurston and Mason Counties to help people in their greatest times of need. Every dollar donated goes directly to keeping the Crisis Phone Lines and other resources open and available to the public.
