Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities Crisis Services

As a regional CMHC, Communicare has access to funding specifically allocated to assist with DID residents who may be experiencing a Crisis. This funding is limited, and access is contingent upon specific demographic criteria and the presence of a DID diagnosis. Individuals who do not have a suspected or documented DID diagnosis, or those who are currently in an SCL residential service do not qualify for these crisis funds. Crisis services and funding are a finite support, typically covering 5-7 days of an individual's health, safety and welfare needs.

We understand that the crisis experience is different and unique for everyone and every situation. We are here to help. You will be immediately directed to a crisis responder 24/7 by utilizing either the Access Center or the DID Crisis Line phone numbers. At that point, we will identify the individual in need, get current contact information and discuss the nature of the crisis. While some situations can be solved via a telephone call, there are other scenarios that may require on site assistance or further follow-up. Whatever the need, Communicare has compassionate and experienced employees who will assist you or your loved one in coping with their crisis.
