After-Hours Crisis Line Allowing young people to reach out and speak to a live person for support when they are experiencing a crisis.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please dial 911.

An Emergency Phone Line for Youth

San Diego Youth Services works with some of the most vulnerable youth in our community. To ensure youth have access to the support they need after hours, we have created an emergency line.

Young people can call the line when they are in crisis, and they will be directly connected to a trained counselor that offers help with mental health emergencies specifically but can offer resources for other crises as well.

Call the Emergency Line

Hours: Monday-Friday, 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m.
24 hours on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. 

Need help 10am-6pm?

Call or text our daytime help line Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm.
