ABOUT THIS EVENT
LEND A HAND is a crisis management model that provides specific information on how to assess and support people in crisis in any number of professional, clinical, or social circumstances that we may encounter.

- Identify where someone is on the crisis and recovery trajectory.
- Assess the most immediate concerns, through a lens of equity and self-awareness.
- Apply evidence-based communication and de-escalation techniques.
- Engage in appropriate self-care and recovery strategies for long term success.
