Description
 
Adults, children and older adults with a serious mental illness or emotional disorder often lead lives characterized by recurrent, significant crises which are not the inevitable consequences of mental disability, but rather represent the combined impact of a host of additional factors, incl. lack of access to essential services and supports, poverty, unstable housing, coexisting substance use, other health problems, discrimination and victimization. These guidelines focus most specifically on individuals with serious mental or emotional problems who tend to encounter an assortment of governmental or publicly funded interveners when they are in crisis. These are applicable to all individuals with mental healthcare needs, across populations and service settings. Contents: (1) What It Means to Be in a Mental Health Crisis; The Need for Crisis Standards; (2) Responding to a Mental Health Crisis: Ten Essential Values; Principles for Enacting the Essential Values; (3) Infrastructure; (4) Making it Happen.
