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 Orleans County Public Health Department helps create and maintain conditions in communities that support healthier choices in areas such as diet, exercise, and tobacco. They lead efforts that prevent and reduce the effects of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. They detect and stop outbreaks of diseases like measles, tuberculosis, and foodborne illnesses.
