Children & Youth Crisis Services

Children & Youth Crisis Services help individuals of all age groups during a behavioral health emergency and are designed to rapidly address and respond to individuals in crisis in order to achieve the most desirable outcomes. These programs aim to provide treatment in the most dignified, recovery oriented and least restrictive setting as appropriate, in lieu of an inpatient setting, whenever possible. Crisis services works with individuals’ immediate support networks and assists in referral and linkage in order to keep the individuals connected in the community with structured support (when appropriate) in order to promote recovery/resiliency and have a plan in place to divert any future crises. They include the Crisis Assessment Team (CAT), Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), Crisis Residential as well as In-Home Crisis Stabilization for Children/Transitional Aged Youth (TAY)/Adults, and the Crisis Hotline.
