What is a Crisis?

A crisis is someone’s personal reaction to an event or experience in their life they find hard to cope with.

People may experience crisis as a result of many events. These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Feelings of fear, failure, uncertainty, powerlessness, hopelessness, confusion, hurt and sadness
  • A sense of losing control
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Headaches, muscle tension, chronic fatigue or other physical problems
  • Changes in eating or sleeping habits
  • Isolating yourself
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Anger and other mood swings
  • Alcohol or drug problems

The main aim of crisis support is to help reduce stress and improve the person’s ability to cope with their current situation, as well as with future crises.
