At Peak Behavioral Health, we know how vital family support can be and the important role it can play in getting treatment for a loved one.
If you are the family member or friend of someone who you believe may need behavioral health support, you are not alone. Every day our team fields phone calls from relatives and friends who are concerned about a loved one in their life. All you have to do is call us for help and direction. Many times people looking for help for someone in their lives believe they need to have a formal referral. This is just not the case.
If you believe you need help—please call us today. We are available 24/7 and are also open on major holidays.
How You Can Help
If you are a family member or friend of someone in need of help, consider the following approaches:
Explain to the person your reason for concern in a caring manner while staying calm.
Offer options. If the person does not want help today, ask if they would consider getting help in the near future.
Offer them support by volunteering to take them for an assessment or ask if they would like you to be present during the assessment.
Offer alternatives to our services. If the person is not interested in our services, maybe there is another environment where they would feel more comfortable initially.
