New Resource from the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention

AAFSP

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention has released Crisis Now: Transforming Services is Within Our Reach, a report that highlights the fractured mental health crisis services system in our country and recommends actions we can take to improve care for struggling individuals. Services today are ineffective, fragmented and in many cases the wrong type of care is provided in the wrong setting. Often suicidal individuals wait in Emergency Departments for long hours or are managed by law enforcement officials who may not have the resources or skill set to address their needs. This report, developed by the our Crisis Services Task Force, outlines the solution to these issues by using already existing, successful, established, and accessible models pioneered by states that are already working to fix the broken system.
