Since 1996, Crisis has provided one-to-one, family, group and counselling to over 36,000 people. We receive an average of 1500 referrals per year to our headquarters in Erskine, but deploy counsellors across 13 other local authority areas
At Crisis, there is no ‘typical’ client or issue is focused on. Instead, we have a range of clients from children to adults who come for support in a variety of issues including recovering from trauma or violence, relationship or familial breakdowns, work-related stresses, loss and bereavement, and more. Our partnerships allow counsellors to work all over Scotland with a range of agencies including those in the health & social care sector, faith communities and business.
We offer specific employee counselling for corporate and community clients, supporting employees who have experienced trauma or who are having trouble adjusting to changes in their everyday lives. These counselling sessions generally result in a reduction to staff turnover, increased productivity, and improved staff morale. We also provide critical incident response and Business Continuity advice

1) Delivering mental health services for employers
Crisis delivers a range of employee services across all sectors focusing on mental health and we encourage companies to purchase key services from social enterprises with community benefits.
We have a portfolio of private sector and public sector contracts, which have been expanded to benefit communities.
2) Reinvesting income into counselling services
All income earned is reinvested into our counselling centre, which provides face to face, telephone and Skype services not only locally but across Scotland and occasionally internationally.
We have made an investment in log cabin training and a Skype suite to have more reach to the disadvantaged, such as those with geographic, physical and financial barriers to support - e.g. young and adult carers and veterans.
3) Supporting those at risk of mental health issues
We have supported 800 young people in the last year, 7% of whom have attempted suicide, 37% of whom have self harmed, and all are at risk of mental illness, family breakdown and exclusion.
We have also supported 1,100 adults with mainly complex need and trauma. They continue to rebuild links with family, community and business.
We have to date on our 20th anniversary (10/5/16) seen 40,000 clients face to face funded by our business activities.
