Critical Incident Response
The EAP coordinators offer supportive services to departments and/or work groups that are affected by a critical incident. A critical incident is defined as a sudden, unexpected, and stressful event such as an accident or injury, a death, a threat or act of violence, or a natural disaster. The event may occur in the workplace or in the community. In large scale critical incidents our role is to partner with Emergency Management who activates the Mental Health Response Teams. We work together to help our community of faculty, staff and students by offering support and resources. The team helps people by listening to what happened, advising on healthy ways of coping, and informing them of the healing process.
