At our first general meeting of 2020, we will hear about the Crisis Stabilization Unit and Blackbird House.
On Jan. 14, 2020 our presenters will be Bindu Khurana-Brown, LMFT, manager of the Crisis Stabilization Unit; along with William Couch Jr., Peer Support Lead, and Tamra Chavez, Director, at Blackbird House.
The Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), operated by Momentum for Mental Health, is intended to provide an individual with more choices in their journey to recovery. Open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, CSU serves as a voluntary alternative to a locked treatment setting, allowing more focused support to help reduce symptoms of crisis.
Blackbird House, operated by Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley, offers a supportive and home-like setting for adults who are at risk of a psychiatric crisis. Blackbird House is the first peer-run overnight respite program for adults in SCC. All peers have completed extensive training to support others’ wellness.
Join us at 7 P.M. in the auditorium of Good Samaritan Hospital (basement of main building). At 7:15 there will be announcements followed by our speakers from 7:30–8:30. (Good Samaritan is located at 2425 Samaritan Dr, SJ.)
