Who We Serve

The Crisis Center is open to individuals ages four and older who reside or work in the western and southern areas of Delaware County. Other individuals who are in need and come to the Crisis Service will be evaluated as well.

Our staff members help the individual, family or significant other assess the situation realistically and assess the individual in crisis to develop recommendations that are most appropriate for the individual's situation.

Our Staff

All of our staff are trained and prepared to deliver comprehensive physical and emotional diagnosis and treatment. Their expertise and training enable Crozer Health to provide the highest quality psychiatric care for anyone seeking assistance with thought disorders, mood disorders, emotional problems, interpersonal difficulties or co-morbid substance abuse.

Suicide Prevention

Suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans each year. Many of these lives can be saved if symptoms are discovered and addressed early enough. Crozer Health encourages employees to recognize the warning signs of suicide and help make a difference.
