The need for crisis services in the United States has never been stronger. Traumatic national catastrophes, such as mass shootings, are on the rise. The opioid epidemic shows no signs of abating. Suicide rates are increasing. Access to mental health services remains elusive for many Americans.
Helping John Doe out of a crisis
Beacon Health Options重新设想了有效的危机系统应该是什么样子。我们认为，一流的危机服务应该做的不仅仅是将个人推荐给提供者。相反，他们应该实时解决危机。
A person in crisis enters the system after a mobile crisis unit visits him at home. The team stabilizes his crisis and then conducts an onsite assessment, which provides a real-time picture of his condition. They connect this person to care that meets his specific needs. However, it doesn’t stop there.
The mobile crisis team helps him sign up for appropriate benefits – or connects him to someone who can, such as a peer. To ensure he remains in care, he will receive 7 to 14-day mobile follow-up services to address any concerns.
The mental health crisis is resolved with positive results.
- Non-clinical needs are addressed, which promises for more successful involvement in care and long-term recovery.
- Risk of harm to the member is reduced and resources used more efficiently.
