Autism 200 Series: Crisis Support for Complex Behavioral and Mental Health Needs

This month’s Autism 200 series class is Autism 208: Crisis Supports : A Panel Discussion

Facilitator: Eric Boelter, PhD, BCBA-D

Panelists include: Elizabeth Landry, NW Justice Project, Gary Stobbe, UW Adult Autism Clinic, Beth Leonard, Developmental Disabilities Ombuds, Stacy Dym, Arc of King County, Gail Krieger, Medicaid/Healthcare Authority, Beth Krehbiel, Developmental Disabilities Administration, Arzu Forough, Washington Autism Advocacy and David O’Neal, Sound, Health Community Network Program

When faced with a crisis, where do individuals with severe autism and Intellectual impairment turn for support, treatment, services and stabilization? Those with complex mental health or significant behavioral challenges are not being served by current crisis services. Lack of appropriate services, held in hospitals, and inappropriate inpatient psychiatric placement are just a few of the alarming concerns. This panel session will take a closer look at what is available, challenges, gaps, barriers, and what should be done to prevent and intervene for people experiencing crisis, challenging behaviors and/or mental health emergency. This panel will address the needs of those enrolled in the Developmental Disability Administration (DDA) system. A future Autism 200 will address the needs of those not enrolled in DDA system.

Class Schedule: This class will be held Thursday, September 19, 2019 at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Wright Auditorium from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Please join us in person or watch on Facebook live. For more information see the  Autism 200 Series webpage.
