A word of caution 

If you or someone you know is in immediate, life-threatening danger and decide to call 911, please be aware that police are not equipped to offer mental health support and may even pose danger to People of Color, LGBTQ+, Neurodivergent and Disabled people.


Please also consider reaching out to your support systems like: community leaders, neighbors, friends, or family to be present if you are calling the police.
