The Person Centered Plan (PCP) is a unified life plan that serves as the road map for services and supports to be used in the youth's treatment.

The plan is family driven, strengths-based with measurable outcomes. It includes the needs, preferences and desires of the family, and the youth. The plan should include a holistic view of the youth and family which results in a recovery plan that details issues important to the unique situation.

A crisis plan includes supports/interventions aimed at preventing a crisis (proactive) and supports/interventions to employ if there is a crisis (reactive).

A proactive plan aims to prevent crises from occurring by identifying health and safety risks and strategies to head off a crisis. A reactive plan aims to avoid diminished quality of life when crises occur by having a plan in place for what to do in the crisis. Plans should include concrete steps to take, roles, responsibilities, and contact information.
