Mental Health and Wellness

St. James’ has discerned a calling to address Mental Health/Wellness. As we progress on this journey, we’ll share resources and information here.

If you or a loved one is in crisis, you can get help by:

Texting the word ‘CONNECT’ to 741741. Trained crisis counselors are available 24/7.
Calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255). The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides immediate help around the clock.

In addition, the Crisis Center provides crisis services 24 hours a day/ 365 days a year. These services are provided over the telephone (240-777-4000) or in person at 1301 Piccard Drive in Rockville (no appointment needed). Mobile Crisis Outreach will respond anywhere within Montgomery County to provide emergency psychiatric evaluations. Full crisis assessments and treatment referrals are provided for all crises, both psychiatric and situational. In addition, the program has six crisis beds as an alternative to hospitalization for those who are uninsured or are insured within the public mental health system.
