“Treating people right, right when they need it.”

 

Connections Health Solutions is a physician-owned, multifaceted behavioral health company whose mission is to address any behavioral health need, at any time. We provide crisis stabilization and access to care for anyone needing behavioral health services. At Connections Health Solutions, we believe in treating every person with the compassion, respect, and the support they need to achieve recovery from mental health or substance use conditions. As the founder and leading innovator of behavioral health crisis care, we are humbled that 35,000+ people entrust us with their care each year.

We have the right resources to provide personalized treatment for people with urgent and immediate mental health needs.

 

Our services are available when you need them - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our approach to crisis care provides every person with a safe, fast, and effective way to receive treatment when they need it most. Instead of waiting hours at the emergency room - or weeks to get an appointment - our crisis centers allow 24/7 access to a wide range of behavioral health services. Connections was built from the idea that there is a better way to help those who are struggling. We foster a culture of respect, integrity, and innovation and look for people to join the team who are as excited as we are to change the way people think about behavioral health.
