The BHS makes recommendations to provider relative to psychological intervention strategies and conducts follow-up consultations to reinforce provider generated interventions.
The Crisis Clinician helps individuals who have become suicidal, refuse medications or threaten to harm others, or experience a sudden escalation of mental health symptoms that were previously under control. Individuals may present for crisis services in a variety of ways, including but not limited to self-presentation, escorted by law enforcement, transferred by the outpatient team, escorted by friends or family, or transferred from the local hospital. Individuals may present as voluntary, or escorted in under initiation of a Title-36 involuntary hold. At times, the Crisis Clinician may be requested to assess an individual currently incarcerated. The Crisis Clinician will assess each such individual to determine if their need is urgent, emergent or routine. The Crisis Clinician consults with the medical staff on-call to the department to determine the best possible disposition or “next steps” in assisting the individual to resolve the crisis situation.
