Spotlight on Success

IDD Crisis Services


For El Pasoans with IDD and a co-occurring mental health diagnosis, accessing crisis services can at times be challenging. Their needs are often complex and require specialized intervention.

Emergence Health Network (EHN) has focused clinical resources to help divert dozens of EHN clients with an intellectual/developmental disability (IDD) from a psychiatric hospital and provide more appropriate treatment to assist them in living stable, productive, lives as citizens of our community.

El Pasoan Delfina Martinez is one of them. Delfina has suffered from depression and mild IDD from an early age and experienced many challenges with anger and aggression; often she was misunderstood. Now, thanks to EHN’s specialized IDD programs, life is looking up.

The EHN Team members go through extensive training to learn how to strengthen systems linkages, fill service gaps for IDD consumers and recognize the cause behind the behavior. Most importantly, they work to prevent unnecessary hospital stays. “Prior to this service being established in El Paso, individuals who had a developmental disability that went into crisis would go through exactly the same system as an individual with a mental health diagnosis that experienced a crisis. They would go to an emergency room and again our emergency rooms are not equipped to really handle physiatrist crisis, not to mention a developmental disability behavioral crisis,” said Kristi Daugherty, CEO Emergence Health Network.

Delfina has gone from being hopeless to hopeful. “Before I was thinking that nobody cared about me, my family or anything and when START got involved there was a lot of people who did care about me and they helped me fight my depression,” said Delfina Martinez. “Now that I feel better I can communicate with my kids, with my family. When I was doing bad they didn’t want to be around me so now they go and visit.”

915 Cares Campaign


Emergence Health Network is proud to be a part of a new city-wide initiative in El Paso to help prevent suicides.  EHN has teamed up with local school districts to create the 915 Cares Campaign which includes suicide prevention posters that are now displayed in schools throughout the city and display the EHN Crisis/Suicide Prevention Hotline number. “The collaboration between our school districts has been amazing. Suicides are on the rise in our city, but together we can make a difference and as a community we can work to save lives and offer hope. EHN is honored to be involved in such an important initiative,” said Kristi Daugherty, CEO Emergence Health Network.

The awareness campaign will also include several short videos featuring parents, students, and behavioral health experts from El Paso who all want to share their message and make sure residents of all ages know that help is available and that suicide is preventable.

Did you know?


Did you know that Emergence Health Network offers a Coordinated Specialty Care Program for First Episode Psychosis?  First episode psychosis simply refers to the first time someone experiences symptoms. Of the majority of people who experience psychosis, the first symptoms typically occur between the ages of 16 and 25, yet it is common for a person to have the symptoms for several months, sometimes more than a year before receiving treatment. However, reducing this time of untreated psychosis is important for a better recovery.
