WHAT IS CRISIS INTERVENTION?

Crisis Intervention Services (CIS) helps victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and their children cope with the initial crisis and aftermath of these violent crimes. CIS began providing services in Park County, Wyoming in January 1982. The 24-hour crisis line is staffed by trained peer advocates. Callers receive empathy and peer counseling support for their crisis as well as a chance to discuss their options and receive information and referral pertinent to their individual situation.

CIS peer advocates also provide 24 hour crisis intervention meeting face to face with victims at CIS safe houses, Park County hospitals and law enforcement centers. Additionally, these advocates provide crisis intervention at the scene of the crime when requested and accompanied by law enforcement.
