The main goals of Crisis Response Project are to stabilize and assist the consumer and families in crisis, prevent unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations, and to prevent police involvement. Crisis Response Project is highly effective even in the most difficult crisis situations due to high level of crisis training, quick response times, and the community partnerships that have been created.
Crisis Behavioral Training Program
In addition to our 24/7 mobile crisis team, we offer an intensive (short-term) crisis behavioral program that consists working with the consumer and support system who is experiencing an increase in crisis behaviors. A highlight of this unique program is to bring “a crisis stabilization environment” to the consumer and families directly to reduce or eliminate problematic behaviors. A CBT counselor works alongside primary caretakers in providing training in effective behavioral interventions. A CBT counselor trains in the implementation of an existing behavioral plan or works alongside a CRP behaviorist in creating a new behavioral plan in order to meet new demands of different behaviors. If there is an existing behavior plan, CRP will contact the behaviorist to work collaboratively.
Crisis Response Project offers specialized transportation services for consumers residing in secured developmental centers or state hospitals.
