Proposed Changes to Crisis Intervention Services

I am strongly opposed to your changes regarding Crisis Intervention Services. Specifically, the proposal to limit services to only be provided by LMHP's and License Elligible individuals will significantly hinder our ability to provide services to all individuals in need crisis intervention. This change will be detrimental to current clients and future clients who are in need of our services. Furthermore, this change is a discredit to all the QMHP's currently providing outstanding crisis intervention services and could potentially damage their job standing. I urge you to reconsider these proposed changes for the sake of both clients and providers. Thank you for your consideration.
