What is a Crisis Response and Stabilization (CRS) Clinician?

CRS Clinicians provide therapy to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness or severe emotional disturbance. They teach coping skills, provide support, and process thoughts and emotions. CRS Clinicians tailor treatment to the needs of the individual to meet the individual’s goals, and also provide assessment and immediate stabilization of acute symptoms of mental illness to ensure safety in crisis situations.
