Crisis Intervention

A crisis is defined as a stressful or disruptive event that can negatively affect biological, physical and social functioning. People will react in very different ways. What may be severely stressful and overwhelming for one individual or family may be seen as stressful but manageable for another.

The Crisis Intervention Service run by Laverton Community centre is a free and confidential service offered to all residents of the Hobsons Bay City Council http://www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au , in conjunction with Department of Social Services and CIS Vic http://www.cisvic.org.au. The crux of the program is to provide a set of robust referral pathways to engage clients with a range of supports.

The Service is available from four venues within the municipality, Altona, Altona North, Williamstown and Laverton. Individuals need only to phone the Centre they wish to attend and make an appointment to see the Crisis Intervention Worker.
