Crisis Response Services for LDH Employees


In response to tragic events that occur in our community, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) will coordinate efforts to address the trauma that LDH employees may experience as a result. As part of this effort, teams from the Office of Behavioral Health will be available to provide supportive services to LDH employees.

Trained OBH teams offer information and resources that address challenges employees may face following these incidents. For additional information, please contact Garcia Bodley, OBH Emergency Preparedness Operations (225) 342-2540 or email at

To access services:

  • For LDH employees needing support during a time of crisis, call the Office of Behavioral Health Crisis line at 1-866-310-7977.
  • For other local public behavioral health services, please contact Capital Area Human Services District at (225) 925-1906.
