Our Life-Saving Mission
To reach out and offer support to people of all ages and backgrounds during times of crisis, to work to prevent the suicide of those who are actively suicidal, and to offer hope and caring during times of hopelessness.
Founded in 1966, Crisis Support Services offers a broad range of counseling, education and prevention services in a safe environment. CSS’ 24-hour crisis hotline responds to more than 60,000 calls each year. Services include on-going therapy groups, school-based counseling, supportive services for seniors, suicide prevention for youth; and community education.
CSS provides trauma-informed care across the lifespan, throughout all our programs. We understand the potential difficulties and triggers individuals who have survived a trauma or traumas face in obtaining mental health care, and as an agency strive to structure our services in such a way as to be sensitive to the needs of these clients and avoid re-traumatization.
