CRISIS RESPONSE SERVICES (CRS)
Crisis Response Services (CRS) provide immediate assessment, referral and/or access to necessary mental health, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or substance abuse services. Crisis response may be provided in various ways, including Crisis Telephone Services, Mobile Crisis Management, and Facility-Based Crisis Center services. The services provide symptom reduction, reduce the risk of service recipients harming themselves or others, and/or provide access to appropriate treatment and support. CRS provide temporary strategies to stop critical, emotional incidents from worsening for service recipients. CRS are not designed to solve or cure the problem that led to the crisis, but rather to ameliorate the current crisis event.
