Crisis Appointment Steps
During a crisis appointment, a therapist will talk with you to assess the situation and provide immediate support. Sometimes talking through a crisis situation with a therapist will be all that is needed.
After assessing for your immediate safety needs and wellness, the therapist will also help you to plan for your future safety and wellness, and a plan for linking to further services if needed. This may include a plan for self-care, a plan for seeking family or other natural supports. We will help you decide the best course of action to meet your needs
If you are concerned about the safety and well-being of someone else, we will work with you to develop a plan of action to address your concerns.
The therapist will help you decide what to do in the longer term to help prevent future crisis, to link you to any needed resources, information or referrals. The therapist may give you some ideas to try at home, some information to read or some suggestions for how to respond if the problem comes back.
