Crisis Counseling

Crisis Services of North Alabama responds to individuals and families in crisis. This presentation will explain their program and the services offered to the community and invite volunteers for a six-session course in crisis counseling and associated skills. The semester-long counseling program offered by Crisis Services educates participants on what constitutes a crisis and how to be an effective helper. Completion of the counseling program certifies graduates as crisis counselors and enables them to volunteer for the 24/7 crisis line (HELPline). The classes of this valuable program cover a range of topics including, but not limited to, an overview of mental illness and development of helping skills for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and suicide.

This is a public program.
