Young people who experience mental health related crises can be reluctant to call 911 due to fear of not knowing what to expect, of police getting involved or getting into trouble if alcohol or drugs are involved.
A SAFE, 24 hour local number to call in the Madison area is Journey Mental Health Center at 608-280-2600. A caring, non-judgmental professional counselor will guide you or someone you care about and advise you on how to help/get help.
United Madison thanks our local West High School students in Madison for writing and starring in a video that helps us all think about what we can do to make a difference in this area and for highlighting Journey Mental Health. We ask that EVERYONE please share this important message and video to their friends, neighbors, families, schools and businesses. United Madison also thanks WISC TV3 for editing and to Journey Mental Health for the support they provide in our community.
