Crisis Response is an intensive therapeutic service which allows for the assessment of and intervention in a mental health crisis. Crisis Response Services are provided to children and adults who are experiencing a significant emotional/behavioral crisis in which the individual’s needs exceed the individual’s resources. Trained Crisis Response staff provides crisis stabilization directed toward preventing hospitalization. Staff are able to triage and make appropriate clinical decisions, including assessing the need for inpatient services or less restrictive alternatives.
Crisis Response Services will deliver solution-focused behavioral health assessments and stabilization of crisis the location where the individual is experiencing the crisis. Without Crisis Response intervention, the individual experiencing the crisis may be inappropriately and unnecessarily placed in a jail, holding facility, hospital or inpatient treatment facility.
