If you are connected to services in your community, it can be helpful to provide an update to ongoing support (ie: service coordinator, case manager or other formal supports) to debrief around the incident and explore resources that might be able to prevent the re-occurrence of accessing the emergency department.
If you and your family are not connected to services, it may be helpful to begin to explore what services or supports are available for people with developmental disabilities and mental health concerns:
