Durham Central Intake is a way to access mental health services throughout Durham by calling one number. When you speak to an intake worker, they will help you to figure out where to start.  Some services through Central Intake will have a waiting list.

Central Intake is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Intake is closed weekends and all statutory holidays.  It is not a crisis line, so if it is an emergency, you will need to call 911 or use another service from the crisis page.
