According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 43.6 million adults have some type of mental health disorder and 12.5% of the emergency department visits are related to mental illness. Healthcare professionals addressing individuals in crisis are faced with high-risk behaviors that are escalating, unpredictable moods, and deep despair. These situations can result in an extremely stressful and high-risk situation for both the individual and the healthcare professional. To care for these individuals appropriately, the healthcare professional must have a good understanding of crisis intervention and management. This course defines a crisis and explains how to recognize when someone is experiencing a crisis, discusses how a crisis develops, precipitating factors, and how to determine the seriousness of the crisis, prevalence of mental illness and crises, and reviews interventions for crisis management.
