The Crisis Respite Center (CRC), part of Parachute NYC, provides an innovative and unique “hospital diversion” model whereby persons seeking temporary residential/respite care can stay in a warm, friendly, safe, and supportive home-like environment where they are taught to use new recovery and relapse preventions kills. This is achieved through 24-hour peer support, self-advocacy education, self-help training, and mutual understanding. The CRC offers people experiencing a psychosis-related crisis with a short-term (one day to two weeks)residential alternative that will allow individuals to maintain daily activities and connect with community-based services and supports, including primary care. The program will provide recovery oriented services incorporating Need Adapted Treatment and Intentional Peer Support.
Parachute NYC is an innovative CMS funded pilot project designed to support a continuum of community based services for individuals experiencing a psychosis related crisis, including specially trained mobile crisis teams and Crisis Respite Centers.
