Description of Subjects/Issues SB13-266, signed by Gov on 5/16/13, authorizing a statewide behavioral health (BH) crisis response system. A mental health (MH) or substance abuse crisis can happen at any time and often individuals experiencing a crisis do not have access to necessary MH interventions in their community. Due to limited BH crisis response services, individuals are often transported by 1st responders to ER or jails, when local interventions would have been a more appropriate, safer, specialized, and cost effective. This will create service standards for the coordinated statewide crisis response system which provides intervention and stabilization for any individual in CO experiencing a MH or substance abuse crisis. These rules establish service standards for a comprehensive, coordinated statewide system that integrates phone crisis services, walk-in crisis services and stabilization units, mobile and respite services. These are based on the principles of cultural competence, strong community partnerships, the use of peer supports, use of evidence based practices, building on existing foundations with an eye towards innovation, integrated system of care utilization, and student outreach through school-based clinics. The BH crisis response system goal is to decrease the use of emergency depts and law enforcement as primary intervening entities for a BH crisis. The BH crisis response system is a community based crisis intervention option that provides services more effectively and efficiently.
