Community Crisis Response

What We Do

Netcare’s Community Crisis Response (CCR) provides immediate, on-the-scene response to traumatic situations that occur within the community. Specially trained and experienced mental health clinicians work with the Red Cross, police, and fire departments as they deal with citizens in the community who are impacted by traumatic events.

This team responds to: homicides, suicides, unexpected deaths, motor vehicle accidents, fires, and other traumatic events in the community where significant physical trauma or death is involved. CCR responds at the request of law enforcement, whenever the officer is concerned that family members may need extra support. CCR clinicians help surviving friends and family members cope in the first few hours after an event, by connecting them to information and resources.

Only law enforcement can call and request to have CCR clinicians provide this unique service at this time.

Annually, CCR responds to more than 200 traumatic incidents in the community and typically assists more than 2,300 survivors of crime and/or trauma.
