Our next Mental Health Monday program via Zoom on February 28th, 10:00 to 11:30 AM, will focus on providing information about

safely navigating a mental health crisis, whether you have state Medicaid (AHCCCS) or private insurance. Topics addressed will be:

  • How the local crisis phone line and crisis stabilization unit work and when to use them.

  • What are your rights during a crisis and what happens when you call the crisis line.

  • Alternative options to calling a crisis line.

The three speakers will be:

Monica Lincoln — Mobile Crisis Team Lead, Spectrum Healthcare

Chris Knack MS, LAC — Stabilization Unit Director, Polara Health

Michael Van Story, BHT, PRSS — Warmline Program Manager, Hope Inc.
