Network Healthcare’s Crisis Intervention Support Service offers immediate, short-term help to children and young people who experience an event that causes emotional, mental, physical or behavioural stress.
The service provides special staff who are experienced in working with children and young people to monitor, supervise, safeguard and offer support on an emergency basis.
A crisis counts as
- Sexual assault
- Physical or emotional abuse
- Mental illness or thoughts of suicide and loss or drastic change in relationships (e.g. death of a loved one or divorce)
Network Healthcare manages the risk on behalf of the local authority until a more permanent, long-term solutions is identified.
