Crisis Response Team Structure:
The Team is structured in two tiers, the Executive Team and the Volunteer Core; all of whom
are supported by Chiron Center's Administrative Management.
The Executive Team includes a Coordinator, two Agency Managers, and seven Supervisors. One member of the Executive
Team is on call at all times.
The Volunteer Core is comprised of 20 – 30 mental health professionals and para-professionals who sign up for weekly
call time. All of the volunteers have successfully completed an initial 30 hours of training, a background
check (including fingerprinting), and participate in on-going monthly supervision. We provide a 30-hour
CRT training each year that is offered as a free service to the community. Out of 40 applicants, typically
5 - 10 candidates will be invited to join the Team at the completion of the training.
The Administrative Management Team supports all of the CRT functions. We have live
operators available 24/7, 365 to answer our "emergency services personnel only" telephone
number. Once the information regarding the request is gathered, Counselors are dispatched to the scene (with an average
on-scene response time of 20 - 30 minutes).
