Crisis and Emergency Interventions
Don't wait until "the end" to seek help
A mental health crisis or emergency is defined as a situation in which a person, if left untreated, could suffer serious physical and mental harm to the point where it may result in a threat to the person’s life. A crisis robs us of our stability and we feel as if we are at the end of our rope. Decisions make under such dire and stressful circumstances are often ones we regret making after the crisis or emergency has passed. At CCTS each member of the treatment team is extensively trained in emergency management and crisis intervention. We will help to assess the most immediate safety need, prioritize care so that the person in crisis begins to stabilize thus allowing movement into treatment.
Often clients come to us in crisis but once in therapy, they discover ways to gain a changed perspective of their problems. What once was a crisis is viewed as a transition or a normal progression in life as the result of an event.
