Mental Health Crisis Plan Guide

 

Struggling with mental illness can be a sensitive topic for anyone, especially when you have to reflect on previous mental illness episodes and plan for a future one. However, creating a mental health crisis plan will help you when you’re at your lowest. It’s a clear direction of how to properly take care of you when you cannot take care of yourself. Let’s go over the basics of creating a mental health crisis plan.

What Is a Mental Health Crisis Plan?

A mental health crisis plan is a how-to manual developed by you and loved ones in case your mental illness becomes too much to handle. When you are no longer in the right frame of mind to take proper care of yourself, this plan makes it easy to show loved ones how you need to be taken care of.

It’s crucial to develop this plan when you are in a positive headspace. It can be challenging to reflect on previous breakdowns, so be sure to include your support group in the process, as these are the people who you will rely on to take care of you. Take your time and think, “How do I want to be treated when I’m in a crisis?”

Developing your Personalized Plan

Chances are, if you are reading this, you or a loved one experiences mental illness to a debilitating effect. Whether it’s depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or general anxiety, there is a clear difference between who you are normally and you in a crisis state of mind. It’s essential to recognize the difference. Below are vital subjects to put into your mental health crisis plan:

Next Steps

Once you have filled in the mental health crisis questions, it’s time to give it to those on your support team. This exercise can make you feel vulnerable; however, remember that the mental health crisis plan allows you to stay in control of your life.
