Navigate the Topic Hub
The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the majority of Americans’ mental health, while also creating new barriers for people already experiencing mental illness, suicidal ideation, and substance use disorders. Because situations resulting in a mental health crisis can vary greatly, it is critical that providers have relevant, timely, and evidence-based methods of addressing crises in a way that is trauma-informed and meets the needs of the individual.
This resource hub will help providers and their staff increase their understanding of crisis, improve their skills when handling crises, and give them knowledge to prevent and manage crises more effectively.
