IN CASE OF A MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY (From the CFMS Counseling Google Classroom) If your child is experiencing an immediate mental health emergency, such as suicidal thoughts or behaviors, please take him or her to a mental health emergency facility for a psychological evaluation. At this evaluation, the professionals working with you will be able to provide a recommended course of action based on their findings. Akron Children's Hospital is the nearest emergency facility that accepts patients 24 hours a day.
