Crisis Plans

Crisis Plans are often developed in collaboration with other services and mainstream providers, who are involved in interventions supporting our clients. A Crisis Plan gives the client, family, carers and support people are clear de-escalation pathway and a guide to service, resources and supports that can be accessed during a crisis.

A client’s Support Coordinator will support the development and implementation of a Crisis Plan and a client’s Behaviour Support specialist will be the architect of that plan, seeking engagement and authority from appropriate specialists (e.g. psychiatrist, general medical practitioner, paediatrician, specialist mental health service).

Our Behaviour Support therapists can work collaboratively the medical and specialist mental health services to ensure the safety and care of our clients. This includes providing disability specific input into the development of Relapse Prevention Plans and other mental health-based assessments.

Crisis Plans are usually built into a Positive Behaviour Support Plan or Support Plan, although they can be developed as standalone plans where necessary and appropriate.
