Our doors never close. We remain committed to unveiling hope, restoring honor, and fostering the values of self-determination and recovery in the lives of the adult individuals experiencing psychiatric challenges.

Crisis Residential Programs provide short term treatment for adults who have become suicidal, critically depressed, or otherwise psychiatrically incapacitated.

Services provided at this home avert the need for hospitalization with:

  • peer support
  • program flexibility
  • mutual trust
  • working together

Whenever possible, those with lived experience of recovery from mental health issues are hired so they can assist through sharing their own experiences, strength, and hope. Adults 18-59 are primarily referred through the Sacramento County Mental Health Treatment Center or Regional Support Teams.

A May 10, 2011, Independent Expert Review Final Report commissioned by Sacramento County (p. 100) praised Crisis Residential Program:

“Staff at Turning Point Crisis Residential are very warm and welcoming and provide supportive quality services to this high-need population.”

“This (client-driven) planning process could serve as a model for the rest of the adult mental health system.”

This program saved my life. I did not know that a program like this existed for persons in crisis. The staff provided me with the hope and support to want to live again, to learn how to live again. I now have a roof over my head, visits with my children and grandchildren, and I am looking forward to starting school in the fall.
