Crisis Intervention Services
Services available for a person in crisis are the same services that are available for anyone served by the Regional Center. However, when a person is in crisis, a different mix of services may be required to meet his or her short-term needs. When a person served by the Regional Center experiences a crisis and the IPP needs to be revised to meet the new needs, the Planning Team must be convened and agree upon a plan of action before new services are authorized. This meeting can happen quickly and by phone, if necessary.
A crisis intervention agency that is available on a 24/7 basis assists TCRC in responding to crisis situations. They can make home visits, help to defuse volatile situations and provide advocacy for services from generic resources, such as mental health. TCRC has a manager on-call when the offices are closed to assist in developing appropriate crisis plans.
