Helping those in conflict and crisis

Community Initiatives

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)

Community InitiativesCISM is a program aimed at debriefing the community after a "critical incident" to ensure that the community is cared for and being connected to services if needed.

  • Gryphon Place is the "hub" for three separate CISM teams: community, first responders, and schools. Different teams respond to different incidents as appropriate.
  • CISM is available to the community as an "in-kind" service and is geared towards the immediate response to a crisis.
  • Critical Incident Stress Management is not a solution to trauma, but a way for those who have been traumatized to get the support they need.
