Initial Management of Behavioral Crises

Behavioral crises can arise from complex circumstances. This tool presents a systematic and sequential assessment of contributing factors, such as Health issues, Environment and supports, Lived experiences and emotional issues, and Psychiatric disorders (HELP). It points to practice tips and tools for health care clinicians to ensure the patient’s safety while assessing and managing the crisis situation. Observation and information collected during this process is a first step in finding what might have contributed to the crisis; this, in turn, offers opportunities for prevention of further crises.
