What is the Crisis Resource Center?
The purpose of the Crisis Resource Center is to reduce the number of people who, during a mental health crisis, are brought to an emergency room, are involuntarily hospitalized, or inappropriately incarcerated. The Crisis Resource Center began as a collaboration among local nonprofit organizations and government agencies to create a more effective approach to mental health crisis treatment and reduce health care costs. Initial funding was provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Individuals typically stay at the Crisis Resource Center less than one week. During that time, they are connected to a network of appropriate community resources to assist them in their recovery.
