Consider additional resources, services, and supports that you could use with individuals in crisis in future practice. These could include community mental health agencies in your area, national hotline numbers, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meeting places, etc.

Review crisis response approaches and any other important information you learned in this course, which would be useful to have at your fingertips.

By Day 7

Create a 1-page “hot sheet” of resources, approach(es), and important notes to take with you for use in mental health crisis response. Also list three or four self-care activities you will use to destress and rejuvenate after responding to crisis situations. This sheet should be small enough to carry in your wallet, purse, or digitally on your phone.
