Posted

National Suicide Prevention Week is September 8-14, 2019. If you are in North Carolina and need help for yourself or a loved one, specifically in Wake or Franklin counties, Advance Community Health is here.

We have Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) who specialize in mental health. Our LCSWs are trained in crisis intervention and suicide prevention. They are available for consultations to our patients at any time during our regular business hours at our location in Raleigh. In addition to our Raleigh location, we have LCSWs available in our Apex and Cary locations. Please call ahead to determine when the LCSW is at the location. For our patients in Louisburg (Franklin County) we can arrange a live, televised consultation.

To contact us by phone, please call 919-833-3111. To explore all of our services you may click on Services at the top of this page

If a person has stated a clear intent to harm themselves, consider contacting 911 if the threat seems immediate. Other options include taking that person to a hospital or psychiatric hospital such as: Triangle Springs (919-746-8900), Holly Hill (919-250-7000), or UNC WakeBrook (984-974-4830).

Outside of normal business hours, if you are concerned and don’t know whether or not a person is in immediate danger you may contact: Alliance Health (for Wake Co – 800-510-9132) or Cardinal Innovations (for Franklin Co – 800-939-5911). These two organizations represent North Carolina’s Department of Health & Human Services.Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-8255
