I/DD Regional Crisis is for individuals in all agencies in region 2 who have currently exhausted all other resources. It is a program that offers educational services, emergency medication appointments, crisis respite for stabilization, as well as therapy appointments.
The mission of the adult crisis stabilization program is to provide prompt and accessible interventions on a least-restrictive basis to adults who meet criteria for emergent or urgent mental health needs. The emphasis will be on stabilizing the client and restoring him/her to pre-crisis or improved levels of functioning while remaining in the community whenever possible.
The mission of the children’s crisis program is to provide prompt and accessible interventions on a least-restrictive basis to children and their families who meet criteria for emergent or urgent mental health needs.
