Critical incident response services

Incidents such as workplace violence, robbery, a natural disaster, suicide or a workplace accident can leave associates shocked, distracted and unable to perform their job effectively. Critical Incident Response (CIR) services are intended to reduce the acute symptoms of the trauma and to prevent the development of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). For more information about SupportLinc CIR services, or to discuss specific needs related to your organization, contact SupportLinc at 1-888-881-LINC (5462).
