In cases of mental health emergencies, you have several options. Select the one from the list below that matches your needs.
- In ANY situation where the life or health of a person is in danger: Dial 911 and get assistance through the emergency system. You should use this option in cases of someone threatening suicide or homicide, in cases of domestic violence and other such situations.
- Solution Resources EAP has qualified counselors on call 24 hours a day. Where there is no immediate threat to a person, we can help determine and facilitate a course of action, make recommendations and referrals. Call our office line and listen to the outgoing message for instructions on which number to contact for these urgent calls. Leave a voicemail message if you don't reach us right away. We will usually return calls within one hour. However, cell phone service can be spotty in the Spokane area. Please call again if we have not returned your call in a reasonable period of time.
