The Care and Crisis Help Line
The Care and Crisis Helpline is a program of the Orleans and Genesee County's Mental Health Departments. It is a free and confidential, 24/7 crisis helpline answered by skilled “listeners.” It provides a safe and non-judgmental source of support for individuals in any type of crisis.
The mission of the Orleans County Health Department is to empower county residents to achieve optimal health, wellness and safety, both individually and as a community, through innovative leadership, advocacy and education.
The Orleans County Public Health Department works every day to ensure the safety of the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe. Members of a community may not always see the work done by local health departments, but people live healthier lives and are safer because of the work of local health departments.
The Genesee - Orleans - Wyoming Health Departments and Hospital Systems are asking for your help to gather data about the health of our counties. Please take a moment to take the survey (please take only once!). We also have paper copies available in English and Spanish. We appreciate your time and your feedback on the health issues you and your family are dealing with and look forward to hearing your thoughts. On several of the questions there are opportunities to add your own comments or add issues that might not be listed. Thank you!
