Eligibility and Care Services (SMI Determination)
CRN was selected to evaluate whether applicants meet diagnostic and functional criteria to receive comprehensive community based mental health care. CRN now administers the Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI) Eligibility Determination program across all of Arizona. Behavioral health service providers complete an evaluation for an individual then submit the SMI Assessment Packet to CRN to make an SMI eligibility determination.
The Warm Line is a free and confidential telephone service staffed by peers who have, themselves, dealt with behavioral health issues. Warm Line staff can relate to behavioral health situations because many have been through the same experiences themselves. Warm Line specialists offer peer support for callers who just need someone to talk to.
The Warm Line is available 24/7/365.
CRN works with local community providers to help you where you are. As needed, our Crisis Specialists can send a mobile teams of trained crisis intervention specialists to you or your loved one to conduct a face-to-face assessment and intervention. A mobile team can meet you in the community and get you somewhere that’s safe.
