Crisis Response

A sudden and unexpected death can generate a severe crisis. Western Reserve Grief Services provides crisis response when there is a death that impacts a community.   

Examples include the death of a teacher, co-worker, police officer, or student. We provide immediate phone consultation, which often results in on-site services within 24 to 48 hours. We have crisis toolkits and hand-outs available at all times.

The focus of the crisis response supports the leadership in the decision-making process and can include: 

  • Crisis intervention
  • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD)
  • Informational Sessions
  • Staff Support

We Can Help

Speak with the referral team by contacting us seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Any first visit and admission can be made the first day.
