Juneteenth Holiday- FPHSA Offices Closing at Noon
June 18, 2021
All services with the exception of residential substance use disorders services will be closing at noon on Friday, June 18 in honor of Juneteenth, a legal holiday in the State of Louisiana. Gov. Edwards signed HB 554 (Act 128) enacting the Juneteenth celebration into law and making it a permanent state holiday. Link to the full proclamation here.
If you experience a behavioral health crisis during office closure, you can access our after-hours emergency line through ViaLink by dialing 1-855-268-1091 or “211”. You can also access crisis chat at www.vialink.org. Text Chat is also available by texting “TXT211” to 504-777-EASE (3273).
If you have a medical emergency, please go to the nearest Emergency Room or dial 911.
We are currently offering telehealth (phone and video) services and some in-person services to meet the community’s outpatient behavioral health (mental health and substance use disorders) and developmental disabilities needs. We will continue to accept new clients for as long as our resources allow to ensure that we are able to help those in need across our community. We understand that we are living in challenging times and want you to know that we do not refuse services to anyone due to the inability to pay. You can visit our website at www.fphsa.org for important service announcements.
