Our Crisis Stabilization program provides an innovative team approach to stabilizing children at risk for behavioral health crises through short-term mental health consultation and treatment, intensive crisis respite support, and family peer advocacy. These services are provided to children and their families at home or other community-based locations by a team of professionals representing a variety of agencies, including MHA. Crisis Stabilization services are available to children whose symptoms and behaviors put them at risk for admission to a psychiatric hospital or ER, but for whom safety can be assured for at least 72 hours (child is not at imminent risk of danger to self or others). Crisis Stabilization is contracted through the Department of Community Mental Health.
