Crisis Respite Centers

Mental Health Resrouces

Crisis Respite Centers provide an alternative to hospitalization for people experiencing emotional crises. They are warm, safe and supportive home-like places to rest and recover when more support is needed than can be provided at home. The Crisis Respite Centers offer stays for up to one week and provide an open-door setting where people can continue their daily activities. Trained peers and non-peers work with individuals to help them successfully overcome emotional crises. The Crisis Respite Centers offer activities such as: 24-hour peer support; self-advocacy education; psycho-education; self-help training; social support groups; recreational activities; linkage to medical and psychiatric providers.
