If you are dealing with an emergency because someone might harm him/herself or others, the solution is to take the person to a hospital (or call 911 if he/she won’t go). When you schedule an appointment with a counselor/psychologist/psychiatrist, you might have a 2-4 week wait time, which won’t address the critical and urgent need. For teenagers or kids, Akron Children’s is also the gateway to a program called PHP, as well as IOP – great programs for teens in crisis. They have counselors, therapy sessions, psychiatrists – a whole team. Similar to scheduling a counselling appointment, their programs need scheduled and sometimes have a waiting list. So, if it is a serious emergency, go the ER.
