Information. Resources. Peace of Mind.

If you or a loved one has a mental health crisis, do you know what to do, where to go and how to get help? Now you do. With the Organized Support Companion in an Emergency Situation App (oscER), you have resources right at your fingertips at the time when you need them most.

When it comes to a psychiatric crisis, time is of the essence and knowledge is key. With oscER on your phone, tablet or computer, there is one less thing to be concerned about and one more reason to stay focused on the task at hand - getting help effectively and expediently.

You don't have to be in a crisis to benefit from oscER

It is good to educate the whole family beforehand on different types of mental illnesses, warning signs of suicide, common signs of relapse, what happens when you call 911, getting a correct diagnosis, and so much more...and it is all within a key tap or finger swipe.

Prevention and intervention tools are key to avoiding a mental health emergency, or to help deescalate a tense situation. You will find soothing music and soundscapes in the oscER app to aid you in attaining rest and relaxation whenever you need it. Choose from a continuous loop of these sounds:
-Rain Forest
-Flute Music
-Ocean Surf
-Song Birds

Let oscER be there for you during a time of need!

Some privacy please

Sometimes mental illness is a sensitive subject to talk or think about. The oscER app lets you peruse mental health information in the privacy of your own time and in your own way. With the resources it offers, you will feel less alone and more connected to the world of information and support available in San Diego.

NAMI San Diego makes it happen

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI San Diego) developed oscER as an app that helps family and friends navigate a psychiatric emergency for a loved one, with regional resources, guidance and information. Support, education and advocacy is NAMI San Diego’s mission, and oscER is one way NAMI San Diego is bringing technology and health together to achieve mental wellness.
