Crisis Intervention Services

Crisis intervention services are provided in situations where an individual's mental or emotional condition could result in behavior that constitutes an imminent danger to oneself or another. Services are immediate and designed to diffuse or resolve precipitating stress through assessment, counseling, screening and disposition services, which are commonly considered appropriate to the provision of mental health crisis intervention.

We provide services to children, adolescents and adult clients of the Robinson Counseling Center who exhibit an acute problem of disturbed thought, behavior, mood, or social relationships.
