Children's Crisis Services

Our Children’s Crisis Services Team provides a quick response to assess a child or adolescent in crisis – with the goal of keeping them in their home and preventing a need for out-of-home care. A crisis can be a catalyst for change and an opportunity for the child and family to learn new coping skills and crisis prevention strategies for the future. Our services can be provided in an office, home, school, or other safe setting and include:

  • Crisis assessment
  • Stabilization strategies and safety planning
  • Short-term intensive crisis intervention
  • Clinical consultation
  • Referral for Services to Promote Further Stabilization and treatment
