Crisis Services

Crisis services were developed as a component of the continuum of services to be offered in the community. The goal of crisis services is to work in the community to alleviate immediate psychological distress and engage individuals in treatment and ancillary services. There is an array of services in the crisis continuum that are designed to reach individuals in their communities, including, but not limited to:

  • Hotlines
  • Warm lines
  • Mobile crisis outreach
  • 23-48 hour observation beds
  • Crisis urgent care centers/psychiatric emergency departments
  • Crisis stabilization units/short-term crisis residential services
  • Peer support and crisis services
  • Critical time intervention
  • Crisis intervention teams (CIT)
  • Telehealth services
  • Transportation
