A crisis occurs when a stressful life event overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope effectively in the face of a perceived challenge or threat.
Crises occur at the spur of the moment and in a variety of settings as trauma can arise quickly. Crises are temporary, although the effects may become long lasting. See our 24/7 Crisis Hotline & Walk-in Services.
Crisis intervention is the emergency and temporary care given to an individual who, because of unusual stress in life, is unable to function or cope as he or she normally would.
Our goal at Coleman is to interrupt the downward spiral of negative thinking and to increase stabilization.
Crisis assessment and crisis intervention strategies focus on the client’s immediate situation including factors such as safety and immediate needs.
In addition to our Walk-in Clinic Services, Coleman offers 24/7 Crisis Support (including an Opiate Hotline and National Suicide Lifeline) and a Mobile Response Program for children, teens and adults in distress.
