A person in crisis may be experiencing deep sadness or hopelessness, having thoughts of suicide, or struggling with their daily life due to overwhelming stress and emotions.
Harbour House is a comfortable alternative to hospitalization for anyone experiencing a mental health crisis. We work collaboratively with Hospitals, Crisis Response Systems and Assertive Community Treatment Teams across the state of Maryland to ensure that all our residents get the best care possible. Our homes are carefully designed to provide a safe sanctuary for our residents and enhance their emotional strength so that they can make a smooth transition back to their community.
Harbour House provides voluntary services for any adult individual experiencing a mental health crisis, and we may assist to shorten the length of inpatient stays when appropriate, without prejudice to race, income, social background, religion, sex, age, or sexual orientation. Our compassionate team of caring professionals understand life’s difficulties. We reach out to families and other behavioral health agencies to ensure each resident has access to the services and resources they need.
Harbour House began its Residential Crisis Service in October 2010 in Crownsville, Maryland. We continue to expand our services within Anne Arundel County. In 2013, we moved our program to Glen Burnie and increased capacity to 16 beds. In 2015, we extended our services and opened a second home in Edgewater to house 8 additional beds. In 2017, we added a 4-resident home in Annapolis. In 2018, we moved our program from Glen Burnie to Millersville, Maryland. In 2019, we opened another 8 resident home in Annapolis. We currently have the capacity to provide care for 36 residents in our homes.
We are the 2nd largest residential crisis services provider in the State of Maryland. In 2016, we served 22 hospitals and 10 Residential psychiatric programs in 13 jurisdictions across the Central and Southern Regions of Maryland and the Eastern Shore.
Harbour House received the Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission in 2017. Our facility voluntarily underwent a thorough evaluation by The Joint Commission to see if our center met their rigorous performance standards in delivering quality, safe and effective health care.
