CISM training is about Crisis Management and Diffusion as a result of a specific incident and ensuring supports are in place for those involved in a critical incident. Those engaging in Peer Support (long term support for those who do not recover well or as expected and not limited to critical incidents but may include support for someone suffering anxiety and depression as well as many other mental health injuries not only acute but also cumulative) are encouraged to do CISM training.
