Turning Point Program

Psychiatric Hospital Diversion and Crisis Intervention Programs for Children and Youth in STAR Health 

Children and youth in STAR Health, as well as their caregivers and families (including kinship families), have access to Turning Point programs. These programs offer emergency assessment and crisis intervention to help support families avoid behavioral health ER visits and inpatient admissions.

Benefits of this program include:

  • Access to Superior HealthPlan’s 24-hour crisis information line.
  • Mental health assessment.
  • Counseling.
  • Referrals to additional services and resources, as needed.

Through Turning Point, children and youth in STAR Health and their caregivers can get help to prevent hospitalizations and disruptions in placement. This program is offered at no cost.

Call 1-866-912-6283, press * if you are having a behavioral health emergency, and need assistance from a licensed mental health professional because:

  • Your child is threatening to harm themselves or others.
  • Your child is engaging in any self-harming behaviors.
  • Your child is engaging in behavior that concerns you.

If you are experiencing a crisis or find yourself in need of emergency care, Superior can help. Visit our Emergency Services webpage for resources on where to go for care.
