Social and crisis emergency services

Social emergency services help during crisis situations occurring during evenings and weekends.

Situations that require immediate actions from the social authorities are part of the duties of social emergency services.

The crisis emergency support provides emergency crisis support in sudden crisis situations, such as the sudden death of a close relative, violent situations, severe injury/illness or fire.

Acute crisis support is short-term support: there are 1 to 5 customer meetings, crisis support via phone, assessment of further treatment needs and arrangement of further treatment.
