The mission of CRP is to provide crisis prevention, intervention, training, and follow-up services as support to community homes, day programs, and families. CRP works specifically to decrease police involvement and unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations. In addition to providing immediate stabilization, CRP also increases the success of consumers in the community and caregiver’s ability to handle future crises. CRP utilizes evidenced-based interventions and cutting edge research that is culturally sensitive and strengths-based.
CRP counselors are highly trained individuals who receive training on crisis intervention, prevention, and de-escalation techniques. Counselors receive extensive education on autism and other behavioral intervention techniques. CRP works as a multi-disciplinary team and counselors come from diverse educational and employment backgrounds to contribute to the team with their varied experiences.
CRP is built on the philosophy that building skills affords individuals the opportunity to gain control and make choices in their lives. All counselors share this philosophy and act primarily as consumer advocate and promoter of consumer independence, while maintaining CRP’s core values of honesty, empowerment, respect, and inter-agency collaboration.
We are very grateful for the crisis team and what a difference they've made
in our lives. They've alleviated so much of our stress now that we know we
can call them for help with our son. Having the crisis team available gives
such comfort to me and my husband. All of you are a godsend.
CRP is highly effective in preventing my client from going to the hospital.
CRP is always there for me when I need them. They always answer the phone, even in the middle of the night.
