Crisis Response for Schools + Communities

An adolescent's life is centered around school. When a traumatic event, such as violence, a death, a natural disaster or a behavioral or health epidemic, teens can feel uprooted and vulnerable leaving them susceptible to behavior and mental health concerns including PTSD, anxiety, depression and anger. 

Julie can work with your school or agency to help navigate the intense feelings being experienced by both adolescents, staff and community members by providing an anchor in reality, strategic support and informed care.

Julie’s crisis response services may include: 

  • Consultation with school and key parties to build rapport and working partnerships with relevant non-profit agencies, community members and local, state and Federal government agencies.
  • Communications delivery and debriefing to aid in informing students, families and community members including answering questions and providing psych-education and coping skills.
  • Reunification support to safely and efficiently return families to one another.
  • Community education development and delivery to help increase awareness of PTSD and share safety skills, coping strategies and post-care resources.
  • On-the-spot individual therapeutic support including  identifying and meeting with students and other individuals at risk for intense grief reactions. In some cases, counseling triage may be established on-site.
