Prevention & long-term stability

Plant Border.png

We can help provide support preventatively, to help individuals before it escalates to the point of crisis.

After a crisis, it's important to build long-term stability to avoid further crisis situations; we help manage that for individuals.

Prevention

Stop Hand Icon.png

We intervene with individuals who are in situations having the potential to launch them into crisis. For example, we will visit a school where a student or faculty member has died, in order to inform people of our services in the event they are needed. We provide education and outreach in the community for support.

Intervention

Heart Hands Icon.png

We intervene with individuals who are currently in crisis by conducting phone and/or face-to-face assessments. We will link them to needed services that can help stabilize them, such as a next-day appointment with a therapist. If necessary for the individual, we can help facilitate referral to a hospital.
