Crisis Intervention is intended to support an individual if he/she is experiencing an abrupt and substantial change that marks an increase in distress. Interventions are designed to prevent out-of-community placement or hospitalization. Often, a crisis exists at such time as an individual and his/her identified natural resources decide to seek help and/or the individual, identified natural resources, or practitioner identifies the situation as a crisis.

Crisis services are time-limited and present-focused to address the immediate crisis and develop resources to alternate services. Interventions provided will honor and respect the the individual's wishes/choices by following the plan/advanced directive as closely as possible in line with clinical judgment. Plans/advanced directives developed during the Behavioral Health Assessment/IRP process will be reviewed and updated (or developed if the individual is a new consumer) as part of those services to help prevent or manage future crisis situations.

Some examples of interventions that may be used to de-escalate a crisis situation could include: a situational assessment; active listening and empathic responses to help relieve emotional distress; effective verbal and behavioral responses to warning signs of crisis related behavior; assistance to, and involvement/participation of the individual (to the extent he or she is capable) in active problem solving planning and interventions; facilitation of access to a myriad of crisis stabilization and other services deemed necessary to effectively manage the crisis; mobilization of natural support systems; and other crisis interventions as appropriate to the individual and issues to be addressed.
