Community Based Psychiatric Emergency /Crisis Intervention Program Bartlett
Behavioral Health’s System of Care approach to Crisis Intervention Services is to offer a no- wrong-door access to mental health and substance use care; offering 24-hour access to individualized assessment and support with behavioral health specialists, therapists, and psychiatric providers who are training to support individuals and families who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis. For us, crisis intervention refers to the methods used to offer immediate, short-term help to individuals who experience an event that produces emotional, mental, physical, and behavioral distress or problems.
Our commitment in providing Crisis Intervention Services includes:
- Reducing the intensity of an individual's emotional, mental, physical and behavioral reactions to a crisis.
- Improve functioning above and beyond the presenting crisis by developing new coping skills and eliminating ineffective ways of coping, such as withdrawal, isolation, and substance abuse.
- Support individuals and families in recovering from the crisis and to prevent serious long-term problems from developing.
