Aspire Crisis can help in many different ways:
Crisis works closely with law enforcement officers who initiate immediate detentions from the scene of mental health emergencies. Hospitals, physicians and other community providers contact Crisis wishing to transfer individuals for emergency psychiatric evaluation, inpatient psychiatric stabilization, or urgent outpatient follow up.
Under the supervision of Aspire’s psychiatrists, the Crisis Department coordinates and facilitates emergency evaluations and inpatient admissions with receiving hospitals. Working with the courts, they assist staff and families in petitioning for involuntary inpatient admissions such as the 72 hour emergency detention orders.
