What is Crisis Stabilization Residential Service?

First Resource's Crisis Stabilization Residential Services is a community-based service provided to adults who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

Services are designed to provide an opportunity to stabilize in a safe, comfortable, and controlled environment.

With support provided by trained crisis response staff, clients are able to connect with appropriate services and resources with hopes of preventing hospitalization and/or court involvement.

Within the first 3 - 5 days of an individual’s stay, daily therapy and skills building sessions are provided. Individuals that need additional longer-term support could potentially stay up to 42 days.
