Community Stabilization
  • Agree with other comments regarding inconsistencies in expectations including referral sources for community stabilization, approval time, frequent changes overall negatively impacting opportunity to provide an essential service are resulting in a heavy burden on clinicians and the community. 
  • Creating more barriers to accessing community stabilization additionally continues to leave families cycling through different systems in crisis, creating more stress and trauma for families and other providers/agencies involved rather than having clear and obtainable stabilization service through community stabilization to start the stabilization support we are intended to provide. 
  • 24/7 in-person response expectation is not a realistic lift for the current workforce and can continue to be addressed in the mean time with collaboration with others and prevention planning with families.
