Navigating a Mental Health Crisis
NAMI developed this guide, Navigating a Mental Health Crisis, to support people experiencing mental health crises, their friends and families by providing important, sometimes lifesaving information. This guide outlines what can contribute to a crisis, warning signs that a crisis is emerging, strategies to help de-escalate a crisis and resources that may be available for those affected. Also included is information about advocating for a person in crisis along with a sample crisis plan.
NAMI wants to help you navigate what can be an overwhelming time in your life by helping you understand what to expect.
