NATIONAL SURVEY FOR FAMILIES: Experiences Using Crisis Services for their Child/Youth/Young Adult

Families who have used behavioral health crisis services during the past year for their child, youth, or young adult (up to age 24) are encouraged to share their experiences through a national survey. As many states work toward developing crisis response systems to support children, youth, and families experiencing mental health and substance use emergencies, it is important that the real-life experiences of families are considered by those designing these systems.

Survey responses are anonymous, and no one will be able to identify or trace any person who responds to the survey. Results will be used to inform the development of effective and responsive crisis systems for children and youth with mental health or substance use emergencies. Crisis services include law enforcement, crisis hotlines or text lines, mobile crisis teams, walk-in centers, and hospital emergency departments.

The survey is being conducted by the Family-Run Executive Director Leadership Association (FREDLA), the Institute for Innovation and Implementation at the University of Maryland School of Social Work, and the Maryland Coalition of Families. The survey will remain open until July 30, 2022.
