Behavioral Health Crisis Support Team

In response to the concern for the safety and well-being of our community and the desire to complement campus safety and security’s response to behavioral health crises, Johns Hopkins University is developing a behavioral health crisis support team to serve our students, faculty, and staff and non-affiliate community members in and around our Baltimore campuses.

This effort will pair behavioral health providers with campus safety and security officers to respond to behavioral health crises on or immediately surrounding our Baltimore campuses. We will also be partnering with Baltimore Crisis Response, Inc. (BCRI), who will be supporting JHU in providing quality mental health crisis assistance for our Baltimore neighbors, leveraging their unique position as an unparalleled leader in providing robust and effective behavioral health crisis care throughout the city of Baltimore.

We are actively recruiting for licensed crisis clinicians to join our team. More information about these positions can be found on the Careers website or below:
