What is a mental health crisis?

A mental health crisis occurs when an individual is experiencing suicidal or homicidal thoughts or feel they may be a danger to themselves or others due to auditory or visual hallucinations or delusional thoughts.


What do I bring to the clinic if I am in crisis?

You are not REQUIRED to bring anything if you are in crisis. However, it would be helpful to have any paperwork from previous mental health treatment along with prescription information for recent medications. It would be best to also bring a state-issued picture ID, Social Security Card, proof of address, proof of income (if any), and insurance card (if insured).


What if I go into crisis after business hours or on the weekend?

You may call the crisis line at 1-800-659-6994. You may also walk into our PETC Crisis facility at 706 FM 2854 Conroe, TX 77301. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to your local emergency room.

 

What is a Mental Health Warrant?

It is a judge’s order to apprehend an individual who presents as a risk to self or others (and refuses to seek treatment). It enables the Sheriff’s Department to transport the individual of concern to the nearest local mental health facility for an evaluation.


Where do I start if I feel that I must file a Mental Health Warrant for a family member or friend?

Present in person to the County Clerk’s office to complete an application for court ordered temporary mental health services.


What do I do if the judge signs off on the warrant?

Be available at the contact number provided on the warrant. Tri-County staff will often try to contact the person who filed the warrant in order to gather information on the situation.
