More Connected and Accountable Behavioral Health Services

Improve access, quality, member experience, and affordability in behavioral health by partnering with Connections Health Solutions.

We extend care and services to all people, of all acuity levels, who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis and we assess, treat, and develop a plan for recovery in the community. Our partners include national and regional health plans, integrated primary care and behavioral health medical homes, emergency departments, hospitals, law enforcement, and providers of community-based resources such as housing.

We contract directly with health plans to deliver high-quality urgent, emergent, and post-crisis transitional care services in an alternative setting than the hospital. We partner closely across the behavioral health network to effectively prevent admissions, readmissions, and future crises.

What Makes Connections Different?

We are a pioneer and national leader in behavioral health crisis care.

We are a fully-employed, multidisciplinary, and 24/7 crisis observation model that is an effective and lower-cost alternative to an emergency room or hospital admission for behavioral health populations.

Our model achieves behavioral health crisis stabilization in less than 1 day and avoids unnecessary hospitalization. Our patients are discharged safely back to the community with transitional outpatient psychiatric and social services to prevent readmission.

We are a high-performing behavioral health medical group with the infrastructure to transform the behavioral health ecosystem towards one that is accountable.

  • We use data and analytics to make clinical decisions and coordinate care.
  • We train our clinicians to practice our brand of no wrong door, least restrictive, and recovery-focused psychiatric care through rigorous training.
  • We have designed an electronic health record (EHR) to meet the needs of our unique model and value-based arrangements.

Connections Health Solutions programs and services are recovery focused.

Our clinical pillars are:

Least restrictive care is the best and most efficient behavioral health care. We believe people recover best in their communities, and we do everything we can to support that.

There is no wrong door to ask for and receive behavioral health care. We accept all behavioral health diagnoses and acuity levels, 24/7.

Timely care is important in a crisis. We intake people immediately and initiate assessment and treatment quickly to foster the best patient outcomes.

Crisis
Observation

Crisis observation is an intensive treatment model developed to treat and stabilize individuals who meet inpatient criteria in an outpatient setting instead of the hospital. Crisis observation prevents unnecessary behavioral health admissions and reduces emergency room wait times and boarding.

Subacute
Inpatient

Subacute treatment is for individuals who need extra time and support to stabilize from crisis, but who don’t need to be treated in a level 1 acute setting.

Transitions
of Care

The Transitions program is for individuals discharged from crisis observation or inpatient who need additional support to stabilize successfully in their community and avoid a readmission. Individuals who may be struggling with social determinants of health such as housing and transportation or who are unable to or don’t regularly attend appointments with outpatient providers can benefit from Transitions.

Residential
Treatment

Connections combines housing with treatment in its residential treatment units to support the continued stabilization of individuals coming out of crisis with housing insecurity.

Kids Behavioral
Health Services

We treat children and young adults experiencing behavioral health crisis in our facility in Tucson, which was featured as a model site for providing immediate access to children’s crisis care in the Pediatric Behavioral Health Urgent Care report, published by the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health.
