A person experiencing a behavioral health crisis is often wrongly seen as a person who is a danger to self or others. Therefore, the response to such a person is often inappropriate involvement with law enforcement and hospitalization. The question is: What should happen?
In this session, the speakers address this question from a broad, national perspective, providing an overview of current realities and promising innovative practices. This session provides a description of possible guidelines and standards for a continuum of crisis services so that they are both trauma-informed and recovery-oriented. Information related to models for transforming and financing crisis systems to move in this direction will also be covered.
