Crisis
Emergency 911
If you have an emergency, or if you are concerned for the immediate safety of yourself or another individual, please call 911. A concern could include if you are aware of a threatening text or message on social media. You do not need to know the exact whereabouts of the individual that may be in crisis to call 911.

Emergency Mobile Psychiatric Services (EMPS)
Emergency Mobile Psychiatric Services (EMPS) please call 211. Regional crisis hotline provides 24 hour/day phone intervention and possible mobile response for children 0 to 18 years old. For more information you may visit their website.

Madison Youth and Family Services is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, and staff is available during those hours to take crisis calls through our Main Number 203-245-5645. During our off hours, as well as during weekends and holidays, MYFS has an After-hours emergency cell phone 203-988-1501. This is for urgent concerns of MYFS clients and Madison residents, as well as police. Most calls are answered directly or you may leave a confidential message. Most messages are returned promptly, however we cannot guarantee a return call within a specific time frame. Please note this is not intended to be used as a crisis "hotline," and we would encourage anyone leaving a message to call either 211 or 911 for further assistance if they feel safety is at risk.
