Crisis Services

Ocean-CREST

When facing a mental health crisis it is difficult to know where to turn.  Ocean-CREST can help you overcome your crisis and link to the ongoing services you need.  Ocean-CREST provides rapid access to short-term, recovery oriented crisis intervention and stabilization services for adults with a mental health crisis.  We help people as they navigate their crisis situation and plan for their ongoing mental health needs.

Please call the Ocean-CREST program at 732-240-3760 for more information or to make a referral.

Crisis Diversion

When someone is in crisis, it becomes even more difficult to navigate systems and resources. Putting together a comprehensive plan that includes treatment, accessing benefits and developing or repairing a support system seems overwhelming and unattainable. Crisis Diversion Services are available to help people with mental illness to navigate these difficult times. As an intensive case management program Crisis Diversion is designed to reduce unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations by helping people identify and prioritize goals, providing the support and linkages to benefits and services people need to stay in their own environment and in the community, and navigating the mental health system.

* Referrals for this program come through psychiatric emergency screening services throughout the Ocean County.

Progressive Assistance to Transition from Homelessness (PATH)

Homelessness is a serious issue in our country. Depression, untreated mental illness, and post traumatic stress disorder, are major causes of homelessness. With PATH services, our caring staff can reach out to people who are homeless and have a mental illness. We then help them to link to resources within the community, mental health treatment and adequate housing. We teach people how to register for all of these services, so that even when their involvement with PATH services comes to an end, they have learned how to access the resources and programs they may need to prevent future homelessness and continue to improve their quality of life.

Please call our Access Center at 732-575-1111 to make an appointment or a referral.

Jail Diversion Services

Some people who have repeated involvement with police are actually suffering with an undiagnosed or untreated mental illness. Jail Diversion Services are available to help link people to treatment programs, support services and mainstream benefits. The goal is to address each person’s mental illness so they can maintain their quality of life and avoid future unnecessary involvement with the legal system.

* You can refer someone to this program by calling 732-281-1658 Option 3.
