WellStone Emergency Services (WES)

North Alabama's first 24/7 Crisis Center



WES at a Glance

A state-of-the-art facility to professionally, compassionately and respectfully treat those in mental health crisis. 

Everyone was so helpful. WellStone offered a wonderful respite during a time of anguish and crisis. When I left, I felt so much better and was in such a better spot. I felt like I could actually succeed in life. I have been to other places, but nothing near this nice or good."
