Crisis, Assessment, and Triage (CAT)

Our Purpose

We provide linkages to community based resources.  

The Crisis team also offers consultation services and coordinates with other agencies and groups.

Please note that we are not able to offer drop-in services at this time due to the mental health building closure.  If you are interested in receiving or referring an individual for services, please call the CAT team directly at (510) 981-5244 to speak with a CAT staff person.  If you are unable to speak with someone directly, please leave a message and a CAT staff will return your call as soon as possible.
