Stress: Stress is the psychological and physiological response that happens when an environmental event is appraised as a threat to ones ability to cope.
The very nature of the emergency services workers' job routinely exposes them to these events, which may be difficult for them to work through on their own.
The Aroostook Region Critical Incident Stress Debriefing Team (CISD) was designed to provide emergency services workers with the tools to deal with the stress of their particular jobs.
Team Membership: CISD is madeup of area mental health professionals and peers from various services agencies. When services are requested, the team will be made up of a mental health professional and at least 2 peers. If at all possible the peers will come from the same career group as the requesting party.
