Learn about the SF Coordinated Street Response Program where public agencies work together to provide support for people on the streets experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. There are many programs coordinated by the Department of Public Health such as the Bridge & Engagement Services Team, BEST Neighborhoods, who help place people inside for treatment, care, and support. Please call 911 for someone in immediate need (wandering into traffic or appearing severely at risk outside). Use 311 for non-emergencies such as reporting encampments, picking up needles or hazardous waste, and more.
