Why FLPPS Chose this Project
A gap in crisis stabilization services, including round the clock outreach, ambulatory and intensive services has led to inappropriate health care utilization.
7% of all ED admissions in the FLPPS regions have a primary diagnosis of behavioral health.
High behavioral health disease prevalence in the FLPPS region has led to a gap in access to appropriate services for patients experiencing a behavioral health crisis. Routine emergency departments and community behavioral health providers are often unable to readily find resources for the acutely psychotic or otherwise unstable behavioral health patients.
17% of all hospital readmissions in the FLPPS region are associated with an individual having a behavioral health diagnosis.
