Mental Health Crisis Services
A mental health crisis is any situation in which a person’s actions, feelings, and/or behaviors may lead them to hurt themselves or others and/or put them at risk of being unable to care for themselves or function in a healthy manner.
ARUP now has a process for responding to employees experiencing mental health crises so that they will have immediate access to critical resources, regardless of the day of the week or the time of day. If a coworker is experiencing a mental health crisis, please use this flowchart to quickly determine the next steps to get them help.
Please remember that your responsibility is only to help get a coworker connected to the appropriate resources. Once the crisis line or ARUP’s mental health clinician is involved, they are tasked with ensuring the safety of an employee in crisis.
