IMPORTANT NOTICE: It is with great regret that we must inform you that the Tulane Building Early Relationships Support and Services (TBEARS) Program will end on December 31, 2018.  We will continue to seek funding and hope that this will be a temporary closing. Please see this resource flyer for a list of local agencies that may be able to treat young children, families, and parents. 

In the case of a psychiatric emergency involving your child, please call Metropolitan Crisis Response Team at 504-826-2675, who can provide triage and emergency appointments. The phone line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the phone number covers all parishes. If your child is in danger and needs immediate medical attention and MCRT is unresponsive, you should call 911.  In the case of a psychiatric emergency involving adults, please contact the Metropolitan Crisis Response Team, (504) 826-2675, in Region 1, or the JPHSA Mobile Crisis Services, 504-832-5123, in Jefferson Parish. 

Thank you for having given all of us at TBEARS the opportunity to provide care to your child and family.  It has been our pleasure and honor to serve you.
