What is a mental health crisis?

A mental health crisis or emergency is a behavioral, emotional or psychiatric situation, which without timely mental health intervention would result in a significantly reduced level of functioning or placement. A mental health crisis is defined by individuals, not by practitioners, meaning there are many reasons individuals can call for support.
