We all face a personal crisis from time to time. Sometimes all it takes is one conversation to help us move past our current situation. These are stories of people like you who needed and asked for help.
I owe Crisis Response Network my life. If it wasn’t for them, I would not be here and neither would my son.

I feel blessed to do what I do! I love that every day is different and I am able to try to encourage, honor and celebrate the gift of resiliency that our callers have. I love that I am able to hear stories of heartbreak and sadness and lift their burden for just a few minutes. I am blessed to work with amazing people who give so much to the callers. I never lack for inspiration because I have lots great examples around me. The work we do at CRN is so valuable and I am grateful to be a part of it!
“My wife wanted to die and I called in and spoke with someone who was very helpful. She kept my wife from doing something drastic. I’m really grateful for crisis.”
“I am the father of a son who is diagnosed with a mental illness and going through medication changes. I called in to ask questions and the person I spoke with was very nice. She gave me good suggestions and strategies for understanding the situation. It was enlightening and she was very empathetic. It was a good experience.”
“[The counselor] was wonderful. I was concerned for my sibling who was suicidal and lives across the country. I really appreciate your help and support in getting him the service he needed.”
