Need emotional support? CICS Offers New Ways to Connect with Us
The Central Iowa Community Services mental health region understands that speaking on the phone does not meet the needs of everyone experiencing crisis. To better meet our residentsí needs, we have expanded our array of crisis response services for those facing immediate crisis. These services are available at no cost to residents in our region.

  • Online chat counseling- This online emotional support connects a person in crisis with a trained and compassionate crisis counselor. Visit http://www.foundation2crisischat.org/ 9 AM- 3 PM Monday through Friday to connect with a counselor through our website.
  • Text support-You are now able to use your phone to text us. Foundation 2 Crisis Text is available by texting to 800-332-4224 and following the prompts. Text is currently available Monday-Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM, with plans to eventually expand the hours we are able to respond to your text.

In addition to these services, our crisis line continues to be available to those in crisis 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can connect with a crisis counselor by calling 1-844-258-8858. Read more...
