Arizona has spent the past several decades developing a crisis system that is widely regarded as one of the most advanced in the nation. In this model, a robust continuum of services work together in concert to provide high-quality care in the least-restrictive setting that can safely meet the person’s needs while also ensuring fiscal sustainability and responsible stewardship of community resources. This presentation will describe key features of the Arizona model including:

  1. overview of the crisis continuum,
  2. governance, financing, and accountability,
  3. examples of collaboration with law enforcement and other community partners, and
  4. strategies for using data to drive continuous system improvement.
