Bender Court Crisis Residential
Bender Court Crisis Residential offers a safe short-term, supportive environment for individuals experiencing mental health challenges with the goal of symptom stabilization.
Bender Court’s Mission is to promote client-centered mental health and to prepare for community re-integration and planned graduation.
Services are provided in a supportive environment that models and encourages hope, empowerment, personal accountability, and the development of meaningful life roles. Supports offered during a stay at Bender Court include but are not limited to: housing assistance, getting established with a primary care provider, connecting clients with benefits, linking to community resources, connecting to transportation and encourages participation in group activities, meetings and therapy to practice learned coping skills and prevent ER visits. Individuals are referred from select emergency departments. Individuals or families may not self-refer.
The program has a capacity of 6 beds to offer short term services to adults within Sacramento County. The average length of stay will be between 3-14 days, with a maximum of 30 days. In the event that a client’s circumstances require a longer length of stay to ensure successful completion of the treatment plan, referral staff will request approval from licensing for a longer stay.
