What To Expect From An adviser

An Adviser should have no other agenda but to provide unbiased assistance in de-escalating and preventing violent or potentially violent or deadly situations.

An Adviser is to provide encouragement to an individual as a confidant and create a safe and comfortable environment for others to share their thoughts.

An Adviser should recognize his or her own limitations in assistance and refer an individual to another Adviser as needed.


During Your Time With The Adviser

  • BE HONEST: talk about how you feel and what you think; there are no wrong answers.
  • BE OPEN TO NEW OPTIONS: your adviser might introduce you to services and guidelines that may be unfamiliar.
  • BE PATIENT. Relief from a crisis take time.
