Speakers: Margie Balfour, M.D., Ph.D.

Professional Practice Gap: 1) Physicians need to understand the behavioral health crisis systems in order to optimally deliver care, make proper referrals for their patients experiencing mental health and substance use related emergencies, and provide medical leadership as communities create new crisis services. This activity will help close gaps in physician knowledge and provide resources for physicians to stay abreast of this rapidly developing field.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the essential elements of a comprehensive behavioral health crisis system
  2. Describe the examples of successful community approaches to behavioral health crisis care
  3. Examine how 988 and other crisis services can be accessed in one’s local community
