Crisis Support Services
Crisis Support Services (CSS) is a mobile crisis
team that provides crisis prevention and intervention counseling
to individuals who have developmental disabilities for Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center, South Central Los Angeles Regional Center, San Andreas Regional
Center and Tri-Counties Regional Center. Teams of counselors are
available to take calls to diffuse a situation or go to a crisis
site to intervene & prevent a crisis. The teams provide training
and on site secondary support to individuals, families, and support
staff. Safety of all individuals is the primary concern; the Crisis
Support Service Teams are always available and ready to respond.
Introduction to Services:
During these stressful changing times, when we are losing
many of our local resources; behavioral services, psychiatric services,
educational services and various generic resources, Crisis Support Services
takes on an even larger role in each of our catchment areas. CSS is
always prepared to be flexible for where the need is greatest. CSS provides
as needed, face to face and 24 hour telephone crisis prevention/intervention
support to consumers, family members, supported living/ILS personnel,
residential direct support professionals and job coaches regardless
of the setting at no charge to the person's family or provider.
The target population for this service is composed of
individuals with developmental disabilities who are referred by the
Regional Center. Many of our consumers may have mental health issues
that are displayed in such a way as to create a crisis. In order to
support the consumer we might be dealing with family members who may
have a mental health issue. These crises may appear, but are not limited
to the following: Harm to Self, Harm to Others, Elopement, Property
Damage, and any form of Uncontrollable Behavior which could lead to
loss of placement or services.
