What is a crisis?

The Oxford Dictionary defines a crisis as “a time of great danger, difficulty or doubt when problems (sadness, anger, suicidal ideation, despair) must be solved or important decisions must be made”. It is a moment when everything seems to be out of our control and we have the feeling that nothing is going well and will never go well again.

However, a crisis comes suddenly but is always temporary.

We are here to help you through the crisis.
