A study conducted by the Crisis Management Center together with its partners showed that one in three people in Lithuania is currently experiencing a psychological crisis. All people experience crises at least several times in their lives, and are an integral and often unavoidable part of it. However, the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine have increased the numbers of people experiencing crises and turning to the Crisis Management Center.
People usually turn to the professional psychologists of the Crisis Management Center for loss, divorce, suicidal thoughts, illness, and other sudden shocks. Experiencing difficult feelings or dramatic life changes can make it difficult for you to return to your normal rhythm of life, and may lack the support of loved ones, so professional emergency psychological help is essential.
If a person lacks internal resources or external support to overcome a psychological crisis, or if it is dealt with in the wrong way, the crisis experiences will last. This increases the risk of depression, anxiety disorders, which worsen the quality of life. And a resolved, successful crisis strengthens a person, and professional support helps them return to normal life faster.
Crisis Center psychologists have been counseling people surviving crises for more than 10 years. The Center ensures that individuals suffering from psychological distress can apply anonymously, on the same day, without registration. Continuous assistance is provided as needed.
Your support will be used for emergency psychologists in crisis packages:
• for crisis support: 8 psychologist consultations are provided. If there is a need for further consultations, we refer you to specialists;
• consultation environment: providing a safe, comfortable environment for consultations at the Crisis Management Center premises or remotely;
• for the qualification of psychologists: supervision, meetings, training.
