Strategic Vision for Building Idaho's Crisis System

The Division of Behavioral Health contracted with Beacon Health Option to assess Idaho's current behavioral health crisis system and provide recommendations to help build a statewide system. Beacon identified region-specific practices, including needs, gaps, opportunities, and national best practices. The results of Beacon's assessment and their recommendations are presented in the Idaho Crisis System of Care Report. The division will provide updates and next steps as the system continues to develop. 


On August 25th, 2020, the Division of Behavioral Health is hosting a first of its kind virtual conference on Building an Air Traffic Control Crisis System. This conference focuses on the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Model for Crisis Services, which leverages the methods used in the aviation industry to provide a framework for all levels of crisis services. The conference features three speakers with extensive behavioral health crisis service system expertise. They will provide information and guidance on how to implement the ATC Model in a crisis system of care. Click here for the flyer for the conference that includes additional information. For more information, including the agenda, speakers, and to register, please click here. There is no cost to attend the conference, but registrations spots are limited. We look forward to convening with you on August 25th.


We strive to provide the highest standard of care and support possible. Your feedback will help us achieve this goal.
