Turning Point Crisis Program

Turning Point is a partnership between Pathways and Superior HealthPlan that provides crisis intervention, acute stabilization, and psychiatric diversion for children and their caregivers. Therapeutic services and natural supports help prevent hospitalizations and maintain stable placement in the child’s home. Licensed professionals are available 24/7 to provide initial support, assessment, and service referrals over the phone. Additionally, mobile, on-site crisis teams providing in-home interventions and safety planning are a part of the process.
