A typical day as a Crisis Intervention Specialist included having responsibilities related to in-home crisis assessments in order to facilitate immediate stabilization of an individual’s emotional and/or behavioral condition. As a member of a crisis team, I refined my ability to multi-task in such areas as the following: working in the field, writing reports, providing phone assistance, on-call support, being dispatched to location(s), walk–ins, and assisting other institutions with Terros services (e.g.; hospitals, schools, business offices, etc.).
Serve a demographically diverse population, provide mental health services, work together with local police and fire departments and community organizations
At times, long hours beyound shift hours.
