The Crisis Response Center (CRC) is operated by ConnectionsAZ under a license held by Banner Health.
The CRC provides 24/7 access to mental health and substance use services for both youth (age 0-17) and adults (18+). Common reasons for coming to the CRC include connection to services, suicidal thoughts or behaviors, anxiety, hallucinations and substance use/detox. Connections helps everyone regardless of ability to pay and can help you or your loved one enroll in benefits.
Many issues can be resolved within a few hours in the Crisis Response Center. For those that can’t, Connections offers overnight observation in a safe and secure environment that is staffed 24/7 with behavioral health medical professionals (psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants), nurses, behavioral health technicians, social services staff and peer supports. After 24 hours, the majority of people are able to have their crisis resolved and continue their recovery at home or in other community-based settings. If continued hospitalization is needed, Connections will arrange admission either in our own inpatient unit or other hospitals in the area.
