Residential Crisis Program

WHAT WE DO

Mosaic’s Residential Crisis Program provides short-term, intensive residential services that focus on stabilizing the client’s mental health status. Clients participate in group sessions, are educated about their illness and medication management, and are provided with support in acquiring or regaining independent living skills needed for community living. The Crisis staff collaborates closely with psychiatrists, therapists, case managers and primary care providers who are involved in the client’s treatment.

Staff members, in conjunction with the client and involved family members, begin developing comprehensive discharge plans at the time of admission. Service coordinators assist clients in establishing eligibility for publicly-funded services, securing medication that will be needed post-discharge, locating affordable housing, accessing primary health care, etc. Every effort is made to link clients to other community-based services prior to their exiting the program.

The program is staffed by highly trained mental health service providers, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, medical assistants, and service coordinators. On call-psychiatric consultation is provided by a Mosaic psychiatrist.

WHO WE SERVE

The Residential Crisis Program serves adults experiencing a mental health crisis who require stabilization prior to their entry into less intensive community-based mental health programs. The program functions as an alternative to hospitalization or as emergency room diversion for adults in crisis. It is also appropriate for adults being discharged from in-patient psychiatric hospitalization who are not ready to return to community living.
