APIC-Access to Psychiatry Through Intermediate Care

APIC-Access to Psychiatry Through Intermediate Care APIC is community-based psychiatrist-directed team that provides hospital diversion services to individuals with ASD, TBI, ID, or DD related challenges.
(10)

APIC is a grant funded program created by the University at Buffalo Department of Psychiatry that provides an intermediate level of care created through a community-based, psychiatrist-directed Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) Diversion Team partnered with existing local agencies. APIC serves children, adolescents, and young adults with autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities, and traumatic brain injury, with or without accompanying mental illness. We provide several unique services including intermediate level care coordination, medication management, dually diagnosed wraparound services, and access to mobile psychiatric care. While APIC makes every effort to support the families of all referrals, it is primarily focused on meeting the needs of individuals who can not be served in traditional mental health settings and who would likely require hospitalization or residential placement in the absence of our services.

Did you know? If you or a loved one has autism, you can secure an Autism ID card. These cards help those on the spectrum communicate with first responders and other support people in the case of an emergency.

APIC was founded on the principal of meeting with patients and families on their terms. At first, this translated as being THE mobile healthcare unit for neurobehavioral health. Now, in an ever-evolving world, it includes #telehealth.

Check out what our colleagues at Ascend Autism have to say about the telehealth practice and how it can be helpful: http://ow.ly/ywf350CZllg

12/14/2020

As reported by Forbes:

"As the Caregiving in the U.S. 2020 report from AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving documented, being a family caregiver can be high stress. It can also, in some cases, bring on PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), an anxiety disorder caused by trauma. PTSD symptoms typically range from flashbacks and recurring dreams to insomnia and poor concentration."

This is the side of care-giving no one talks about, but is equally as important to recognize. #AskForHelp and be aware of your family and friends who need support.

On our #mentalhealthmonday, we wanted to remind you of the importance of taking a beat, take inventory and be sure to seek help when it's needed.
