Continuity of Care: 4th Grader Gets Needed Help

CT Alliance to Benefit Law Enforcement worked with mobile crisis providers to develop C-SSRS tear off sheets, improving communication with hospitals where, upon arrival, they share the C-SSRS findings.

A CT school counselor used the C-SSRS to identify a 4th grader who was suicidal. He was sent to mobile crisis services who confirmed his C-SSRS results. He was then brought to the hospital who provided counseling and safety planning.

This timely intervention and continuity of care was all facilitated by each touch point using the common language of the C-SSRS.
