Crisis Center

The Crisis Center of Family Services provides face-to-face professional, short-term counseling, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for people of all ages in Brown and Sheboygan Counties. The same services are provided by our center for Kewaunee County, after-hours only. The Crisis Team in Brown County also serves 13 counties in Northern and Northeastern Wisconsin with professional crisis counseling over the phone, 24/7 (see list at right).

 

Counseling services are available for nearly any situation you or your loved ones may be facing, including but not limited to:

  • Alcoholism or Alcohol Abuse

  • Anxiety

  • Couples Conflicts

  • Depression

  • Divorce

  • Domestic Violence

  • Drug Abuse

  • Grief and Loss

  • Housing

  • Job Loss

  • Major Life Changes

  • Mental Health

  • Parent/Child Conflicts

  • Relationship Issues

  • Runaway Youth

  • Sexual Assault or Abuse

  • Suicide and Suicide Prevention

 

Staff of the Crisis Center have a bachelors or masters degree in a mental health discipline and are trained in crisis intervention. Our goal is to intervene in crisis situations as skillfully and quickly as possible to stop ineffective behaviors and return people to their level of coping before the crisis. While our telephone counselors remain in the center to consult over the phone, we also offer mobile crisis counselors who will see people anywhere in Brown or Sheboygan County.

 

What to Expect When You Come to the Crisis Center:

Counselors will listen to you and provide an assessment of your current situation. A plan will be developed with you that meets both your immediate and long-term needs. We will also follow-up with you to re-evaluate your status and refer you to other community resources if additional help is needed.
