  5. 5. This is Zachary. http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/370602535/
  6. 6. Zachary had a heart attack. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jreed/322057793/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/370602535/
  7. 7. Heart Attack Analogy CRISIS CRISIS ADVERSITY This event required the services of an HEALTH EMERGENCY or CRISIS RESPONSE TEAM This event required the continuous health monitoring services Zachary needs to be buried, his estate or will needs to be managed, family needs to adjust to a life without him. 1. Zachary’s first heart attack 3. Zachary’s fatal heart attack = RIP 2. Zachary living with heart complications = change in lifestyle = living in “adversity”
  8. 8. This is Zeon; he is a college student. He is depressed. http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/363878274/in/photostream/
  9. 9. He needs a Counselor’s/ Mental Health Pro help. http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/355942544/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/363878274/in/photostream/
  10. 10. But there was no counseling services at his college. x http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/355942544/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/minifig/363878274/in/photostream/
  11. 11. Zeon’s Depression & Suicide Story CRISIS CRISIS ADVERSITY Ideally a school will help Zeon’s depression by providing mental health services. Since there was no intervention in Zeon’s case…he committed suicide…this calls for a response by the school crisis management team 1. Zeon depression started = CRISIS STARTED 3. Zeon committed suicide and succeeded at it. 2. Zeon’s depression continues = ADVERSITY
  12. 12. Crisis vs Adversity? <ul><li>Require the response of a predetermined CRISIS RESPONSE TEAM </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. Crisis Response Team members responding to a successful suicide attempt. </li></ul><ul><li>Requires continuous provision of service </li></ul><ul><li>Eg.
