If you are in immediate danger, call 911. Ask for an Emergency Protective Order (EPO) when the police arrive.
If you are not in immediate danger and would like to talk to a trained crisis counselor, or if you are interested in information about your options, call our 24-hour Crisis & Information Line at (805) 781-6400. This line is staffed around the clock by crisis counselors who will listen, help you make a plan, direct you to resources, or connect you to the Emergency Safe House if needed.
If you are concerned about a friend or family member, you can call the crisis line as well. The crisis counselor will discuss your options and direct you to resources for your loved one.
