Youth Crisis Respite
Youth Crisis Respite provides a short-term placement for youth ages 5-17 experiencing a mental health crisis. Services are typically 2-14 days to assist in stabilizing a current (not on-going) crisis situation. Focus is on the temporary separation from youth’s natural environment to prevent the risk of deterioration of their mental health condition or harm to themselves or others.
On-site services include: Continuous observation and supervision, medication administration and treatment planning. Crisis Respite programs operate utilizing TARGET: Trauma Affect Regulation and Positive Behavior Support (PBS) curriculum.
During a youth’s stay at Glen’s House, emphasis is placed on creating an environment designed to support youth in trauma recovery. Each youth will have a comfortable, private room. Residents will be encouraged to participate in structured activities that are scheduled throughout the day. Balanced nutritional meals are provided in a family-like setting.
