A crisis can refer to trauma, a natural disaster, mental illness, medical illness, victimization, grief, or relationship changes. A crisis can be difficult for anybody to cope with, and many times crises are recurring situations for an individual suffering from mental illness or a substance use disorder. It may cause a person to lose their ability to cope with stress, trauma, grief, guilt, shame, or any other dilemma causing them to lose their mental balance, or even relapse back into substance abuse. A crisis can make a person feel like everything in their life is unraveling, and overcoming the emotional turmoil that comes with a crisis can be daunting.
Crisis intervention is an immediate and short-term emergency response to mental, emotional, physical, and behavioral distress. Crisis interventions help to restore an individual’s level of functioning and minimize the potential for long-term trauma or distress. Crisis Intervention will help clients receive assistance, resources, stabilization and support.
