Accessing Mental / Behavioral Health Support

These resources are listed in order of urgent mental/behavioral health support first to routine mental/behavioral health support. Please note that some of the resources listed are for Southborough residents specifically or contain Southborough-specific information.

a. Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide or experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis, dialing 988 from your phone provides a direct connection to free, confidential, and compassionate support. When you call or text 988 or visit the Lifeline Chat, you'll be quickly connected to trained crisis counselors who will listen to your concerns, provide support, and connect you to additional resources if needed. For 24/7 confidential support, just call or text 988 or visit the Lifeline Chat.

Residents can still call 911 for psychiatric emergencies.

b. Mobile Crisis Intervention (MCI) 

Local mental health emergency intervention: 800-640-5432

MCI provides you/your family members with crisis assessment, intervention, and short-term stabilization. Instead of going to the emergency room, you can get these services in your home or at other locations in the community. Learn more about Adult and Youth Mobile Crisis Intervention.
