Smart protocols mean better outcomes.
Benchmark has extensive experience in developing and operating large-scale crisis management systems. These systems respond to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis.
These services, which include time-based protocols for in-home responses and options for acute placement, are proven to reduce critical incidents, failed placements, and readmission to psychiatric facilities for community-based clients.
Services are generally modular and can be customized to meet a number of variables, from geographic area and consumer characteristics to budgets. Stabilization within an individual’s residential/community setting often diverts incarcerations and stays in hospitals and other institutions. Services can be scaled from comprehensive statewide systems, to specialized projects focused on a single region or metropolitan area.
Additionally, Benchmark operates crisis support homes for persons with IDD when it is not possible to stabilize the individual’s behavior within their own home.
