The Crisis Assessment Checklist is a tool used to assess the intensity of a mental health crisis. It helps a mental health professional determine the severity of the crisis and decide on an appropriate course of action. The Checklist assesses the level of risk a person is at during a crisis, as well as the level of impairment they are experiencing. It also looks at the person's current support system, and any potential triggers that could have caused the crisis. The Checklist is an invaluable tool for mental health professionals, allowing them to quickly assess the severity of a crisis and determine the best course of action.
