Lancaster County Youth Crisis Response is designed to use supports and resources to build upon a youth and family's strengths to help resolve an immediate behavioral health crisis in the least restrictive environment by assisting the youth and/or family to develop a plan to resolve the crisis. The service is provided by licensed behavioral health professionals who complete brief mental health status screenings, assess risk, and provide crisis intervention, crisis stabilization, referral linkages, and consultation to hospital emergency room personnel, if necessary. The goal of the service is to avoid an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.
Crisis Response services can be activated by calling the Crisis Line at 402-475-6695. Additional information can be found on CenterPointe's website.
