South Central Crisis Service
In collaboration with CommuniCare, Yale Behavioral Health provides telephonic and mobile crisis services to programs funded by DMHAS (Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services) in the South Central region of Connecticut. The goals are to provide support and safety for individuals in crisis; assist these individuals to remain in the community; and decrease the number of individuals seeking services in the local Emergency Department. Staff members are skilled in brief evaluation, crisis intervention and in determining the appropriate level of care for individuals in crisis. The program receives referrals from mental health agencies, families, police, landlords, neighbors and clients themselves.
