Mission Statement of the DS Crisis Team:

It is the mission of NCSS’s Developmental Emergency Services team to empower individuals to express themselves in a supportive environment, allowing them to regain balance. Empowerment begins by recognizing and showing empathy for the struggles of the individuals we serve.

Emergency Services are time-limited, intensive supports provided for individuals who are currently experiencing, or may be expected to experience, a psychological, behavioral or emotional crisis.
