Crisis Support

If you are concerned about your ability to keep yourself or others safe or are currently experiencing significant emotional distress, we encourage you to contact CAPS Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm for a crisis consultation with an on-call clinician.  You may also access CAPS after normal business hours by calling our main number at 703-993-2380 and select option 1, in order to speak with a crisis counselor. Please visit our After-Hours Crisis Support page.

For information on how to make an appointment, please visit our Make An Appointment page.

If this is a life-threatening emergency, please dial 911 or Mason Police at (703) 993-2810 to let them know you are having a mental health emergency.
