Among the topics:

Now Available Crisis Residential Treatment Toolkit

The SAMHSA funded toolkit on the development of community alternatives to hospital-based acute care services is now available.

Click here for the table of contents and here to order your copy for only $ 149. The toolkit provides everything you need to know to develop, implement and operate alternatives to hospital-based acute care services.

Although conventional wisdom asserts that there is a nation-wide shortage of inpatient psychiatric beds, CASRA believes the solution is crisis stabilization, psychiatric emergency and crisis residential alternatives that are not hospital-based.  Progress Foundation’s Dore Street is a prime example of a community-based response to a system’s acute care needs. It features a psychiatric emergency room and stabilization center attached to a crisis residential program.

CASRA’s spring conference (May 7-8, 2015 in Concord, CA) includes a half-day institute on the development of effective alternatives to psychiatric hospitalization featuring the work of Steve Fields, author of Crisis Residential Treatment Manual.

Meaningful Roles for Peer Providers in Integrated Healthcare

CASRA is pleased to announce the availability of its latest toolkit, "Meaningful Roles for Peer Provides in Integrated Healthcare."

The toolkit was developed by CASRA with support from the Integrated Behavioral Health Project and funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority’s (CalMHSA) Statewide Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Initiative.
