Crisis intervention services respond to those experiencing distress or anxiety that results from mental health and substance use disorder. One of the main goals of crisis intervention services is to prevent people, including those from indigenous communities, from needing more restrictive care, such as psychiatric hospitalization or emergency detention. These services are important and available for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people.
The Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board (NPAIHB) worked with a Contractor to examine the extent of crisis services available to AI/AN people throughout the Indian Health Service regions in the United States to better understand the strengths and needs of services accessible for AI/AN people.
Many of the services you will find in this interactive map just scratch the surface of what each organization may be able to provide so feel free to look around on each of the organization’s or Tribes websites an hopefully you can find what you are looking for.
