What to do in a Mental Health Crisis

When a friend or family member is struggling mentally or emotionally, what should you say or do? When is professional help indicated, and what should you expect when you reach out?

Offered in cooperation with NAMI-Barrington Area, and the Barrington Area Library, a panel of local experts including first responders, mental health clinicians and representatives of the court system will present information, strategies and insight for working through a crisis event. The panel presentation will include a question and answer session.

What will you learn?

  • Communication and intervention techniques to de-escalate stressful and potentially violent situations
  • How to have the “best” possible outcome when you call 911
  • Where to turn for sustainable solutions to prevent future crises
  • How the legal system can assist in getting treatment for a loved one who won’t accept treatment
  • How to maximize ER visits and treatment programs

Panel participants representing Barrington Behavioral Health & Wellness will be Founder and Director Dr. Denise Casey and Clinical Coordinator of Senior Services, Cori Moschberger, LCSW.

We hope you can join us for this 90 minute introduction into mental health crisis management!
