Children's Crisis and Referral Line Partnership

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) Bureau for Behavioral Health (BBH) has partnered with First Choice Services to offer a children’s crisis and referral line to interrupt behavioral health crises and connect families and youth with behavioral health services in their communities. Families and youth can call, text, or chat the Children’s Crisis and Referral Line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 844HELP4WV or 844-435-7498. The Children’s Crisis and Referral Line connects families and youths with crisis and non-emergency behavioral health services. 

In crisis situations, the helpline links families with regional Mobile Crisis Response and Stabilization Teams who can help de-escalate the behavioral health crisis by phone or respond in person in most areas of the state if the family chooses. The helpline also serves as an access point for referrals to non-emergency behavioral health services in the caller’s community.
