If urgent…

The telephone number to call in a medical emergency is 911.  Parents should request the ambulance take a son or daughter under age 19 to a hospital that has a pediatric psychiatric unit so the youth is NOT placed with adult patients.  Facilities around Boston are Children’s Hospital and Franciscan Hospital for Children.

The telephone number for youth to call about suicidal ideation is Samariteens at (800) 252-8336. This anonymous help line is staffed by teen volunteers weekdays 3pm-9pm, and weekends 9am-9pm.  Outside these times, calls are forwarded to the 24 hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline,  (800) 273-8255.

 

If concerned…

The pediatrician is the first referral contact and other referral resources vary by location.  For example, William James College provides families with a referral meeting their needs  including:

  • specialty
  • availability
  • location
  • insurance
  • trust

The assisted referral number is 617-332-3666 x 1411 (M-F, 9am–5pm).  This warmline ‘holds’ each family safely until engaged with the right provider, which is verified through follow-up.  Any community may contract with the university; their web address is Interface.WilliamJames.edu
