Planning For and Responding to a Mental Health Crisis

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Indiana) has published Planning For and Responding to a Mental Health Crisis (3rd edition).  It is a useful tool to become familiar with terms that may be used during a crisis, making a plan for what to do if a crisis arises, and what options are available in various communities across the state.  Although the booklet is largely targeted at adults with mental illness, the concepts are applicable to juveniles also.

NAMI Indiana operates a telephone support line (information here).  There are also NAMI Indiana affiliates across the State (contact information available here).

The post Planning for and Responding to a Mental Health Crisis was first published on the Indiana Juvenile Justice Blog.
