Crisis Stabilization – Project 3.a.i.i


Emergency departments and community behavioral health providers are often unable to readily find resources for the acutely psychotic or otherwise unstable behavioral health patient. Crisis Stabilization services provide a single resource of expert care management for these complex patients where they can be monitored in a safe location, supporting the de-escalation of the crisis. A mobile crisis team will be available to assist with moving patients safely to an inpatient psychiatric stabilization if short term monitoring does not resolve the crisis and will follow-up after stabilization to ensure continued wellness.

Care Compass Network’s Goals

  • Provide resources for emergency departments and community behavioral health providers.
  • Increase awareness and provide the necessary tools on how to monitor and observe unstable behavioral health patients.

Who is Eligible to Participate in the Project?

Observation Units in Hospitals and Community-based organizations that deal with behavioral health patients, provide crisis respite services or a crisis suicide call center.
