In this workshop, participants will hear about the need for and development of Family Crisis Coordination for youth who are high utilizers of crisis stabilization units and have either poor engagement in services or have had attempts of recovery with all identifiable services. The need for leaders to buy in and innovate with this model will be reviewed. The presentation will describe the details of this non-traditional approach, including implementation, a methodology of reducing Baker Acts, and family engagement strategies. Participants will hear first-hand family stories and hear feedback directly from a caregiver involved with the program. Statistical evidence will be reviewed to show positive outcomes directly associated with a cost-benefit analysis.
