When to Act, Planning for an Emergency, What to do in an Emergency Situation

Local Area Resources and help in a Mental Health Crisis. If you or your loved one is a danger to self or others, call the Mobile Crisis Intervention Unit or call 911. If you call 911 please request a CIT Trained Officer. Be ready to give the dispatcher:

Your Name, address, the name of your loved one, any diagnosis, weapons (yes or no), medications (on or off), drug use, age/height/weight, clothing description, prior violent behavior, past psychosis, details about delusions or hallucinations (past or present), triggers, things that have helped de-escalate in the past.

Remember these people do not know your loved one. Keep in mind: You are asking a stranger to come to your home and resolve a crisis. They will have no information unless you tell them.

It is always a good idea to have a written crisis plan in place. Please read NAMI Navigating a Mental Health Crisis and have a plan in place before you encounter an emergency.

Addiction Treatment Center SC

Are you addicted to a substance? Or are you abusing a substance? They are different. Many times, people with substance abuse issues are able to stop or change their risky behavior. On the other hand, addiction is a disease that makes it hard to stop abusing substances even when it is causing you to experience harmful consequences. That’s not to say that substance abuse is something you can take lightly. If you are looking to attend rehab for your substance addiction in the South Carolina area, you can receive SC addiction treatment here at The Owl’s Nest Recovery.

Mental Health Court - York County

SC Judicial Branch, York County Mental Health Court

What is Mental Health Court? "York County started a mental health court Friday as an alternative way of dealing with non-violent criminal offenders who have mental illness. Offenders must plead guilty with the opportunity to get their records eventually wiped clean if they complete three years of counseling and court monitoring, prosecutors said.

The court was created to address the problem of people with mental illness who commit crimes because of a problem with staying on medications or other problems, said Kevin Brackett, 16th Circuit solicitor. Offenders will be treated at Catawba Community Mental Health Center as part of a three-year court-treatment plan, he said.

"This is an effort to break the cycle for this segment of our population that offends, and re-offends," Brackett said" ... Continue Reading

Judge Carolyn W. Rogers: As probate judge, she speaks often to churches and other community groups and businesses about advance planning and the role of the probate court, to law enforcement in regard to mental health commitments, and to members of the SC Bar as to practice tips in the probate court.

For Family members or caregivers, when involuntary treatment becomes necessary, contact Keystone Or Catawba Mental Health and request an involuntary commitment appointment.

Pathways Community Center

The PATHWAYS concept is unique: to create in one location, a single point of entry that serves as a "pathway" to a continuum of care that will provide stability, supportive services, and shelter, to renew broken lives. As York County’s population continues to grow, so too does the number of people in crisis. Meeting this increasing demand for assistance has been an overwhelming task for our community’s service agencies. To help meet this challenge, a group of business, church, government, and community leaders has been working with existing agencies on a new model that offers access to all the critical services for our struggling adults and families at a SINGLE location in Rock Hill.

Guarding, Advocating & Protecting Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
  • Guardianship involves the appointment of an individual (a guardian) by the Probate Court to handle the personal, custodial, and healthcare decisions for an incapacitated adult (your child).
  • A Conservatorship involves the Probate Court appointing an individual (a conservator—you in most cases) to manage an incapacitated adult’s (your child’s) financial affairs or property.
  • Power of Attorney is a legal document, also filed in Probate Court, which establishes certain legal powers to act on the behalf of an individual (your child). These documents are for a specific function like medical or financial affairs, and end at a specific time, or after a specific function is carried out.
The South Carolina Autism Society has created a guide to help you determine which legal action is appropriate for protecting any transitioning child with a disability. This handbook is intended to help narrow down your legal options, but in no way is it intended to be used as legal advice or an endorsement from any attorney.
