The objective of these services would be to prevent inappropriate use of Emergency Rooms, Jails, or Psychiatric Hospitals, when the need for service can be effectively met in a more natural, less restrictive, and less costly setting.

  • New Model of Service This new model of care will provide wrap-around services for the individual that includes Psychiatric Services, On-Call Crisis Response Teams and a Crisis Respite Facility. Recipients would have access to a team of professionals: Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, RN, LPC/LPA, Behavioral Specialists, and Skills Trainers to assess needs, identify resources, link to a network of resources within the team and through contracted providers, and assure services are provided that will appropriately de-escalate the crisis in the community when possible.

  • New Model of Service The team will develop strategies to build skills of individuals and competency of their support network to address the individuals future needs more adequately, targeting crisis prevention. While this model of care is not designed to replace natural support systems or formal residential care systems, it is specifically targeted to insert a new support for individuals in between these systems and institutional care or loss of current home environment.
