Implementing an effective Crisis Response System benefits individuals, families and communities. This training will provide an overview of the goals and strategies to consider when designing and implementing an effective Crisis Response System while also considering how to structure services and approaches to best meet the needs of individuals who experience a mental health crisis and how to respond to individuals at risk of suicide.
By the end of this learning session, participants will be able to:
Describe the goals and strategies of the Crisis Now model.
Explain the impact risk and protective factors have on individuals, families and communities.
Identify warning signs and increase individual willingness and ability to intervene with a person at risk for suicide.
