Crisis counseling provides prevention, intervention and follow-up. Counseling and support are provided to students and families facing emergency situations. Such counseling is short term and temporary in nature. When necessary, referrals are made to appropriate community resources. Dr. McCormac chairs Nottingham's Crisis Counseling Team. The team meets twice a year to plan how to handle mental health emergencies. If a crisis occurs the school counselor will coordinate the response within the school and ask for help from other student services staff from Arlington County as needed.
