A crisis could range in meaning. For example, a situation could develop due to getting in trouble with the law or injuring yourself accidentally. A situation could also become a crisis situation if you find yourself developing a plan to take your own life or are considering hurting others. No matter the reason, a crisis situation is defined as a stressful time in an individual’s life when they experience a breakdown or disruption in their usual or normal daily activities or family functioning.
MCCMH offers several resources to Macomb County residents. Our Open Access program helps resolve crisis situations by offering same-day or next-day services, including crisis response, family support, links to resources, and help accessing mental health services and alternatives.
The Macomb Emergency Response Group (MERG) is a specially trained team of volunteers from police, fire, emergency medical services, mental health, clergy, and other professions which provides Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) services for anyone exposed to a critical incident or a mass disaster. A critical incident could be a fire, suicide, workplace accident, plan crash, tornado, or accidental death. Typically, a MERG team will meet with a group of people who have been exposed to a critical incident and ensure a confidential setting in which they can freely talk about their experiences and express their reactions. To request information on MERG or request the services of MERG, call the MCCMH Crisis Center at (586) 307-9100 and you will be assisted.
