SAMHSA’s National Guidelines for Behavioral Health Crisis Care – A Best Practice Toolkit has established a no-wrong- door integrated crisis system of care that includes designations for 1) someone to talk to (i.e., call centers), 2) someone to respond (i.e., mobile crisis teams), and 3) somewhere to go (i.e., crisis stabilization centers). Additionally, the workforce in crisis residential centers provide acute psychiatric services in semi-secure settings to children and adolescents experiencing a behavioral health crisis. NRI’s 2022 State Profiles Workforce component captures behavioral health workforce data for call centers, mobile crisis teams, crisis stabilization centers, and crisis residential centers.
