In this SAMSHA webinar, learn about the Crestwood Behavioral Health’s Freise HOPE (Helping Others through Peer Empowerment) House, a short-term, voluntary, mental health Crisis Residential Treatment Program in Bakersfield, CA that welcomes guests into a warm, homelike environment. In this program, guests are provided a short-term safe place to land during a psychiatric crisis. Guests are also engaged using a variety of recovery-based tools such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Wellness Recovery Action Plans, and trauma-informed approaches to help them manage their symptoms and develop skills to live effectively in the community. The treatment team is comprised entirely of people with lived experience, who are trained and certified peer providers.
