Psychiatric Crisis Resource Kit App

It’s the Treatment Advocacy Center’s new mobile “Psychiatric Crisis Resources Kit,” a smartphone app that puts critical information into the hands of families dealing with acute psychiatric crises – whenever and wherever the emergency strikes.

In the application: state-specific standards for emergency hospitalization and for who can initiate treatment; inpatient and outpatient commitment criteria by state; tips on navigating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); and information on responding to specific kinds of psychiatric emergencies such as suicide or assault danger.
