What is the Employee Assistance Program?

We determine the root cause of the crisis and offer solutions-focused interventions to promote independence, personal growth and collaborative decision-making that are intended to assist the individual to return to a pre-crisis state.

Our crisis support services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, on-site, in the community or in-home to anyone in Gettysburg, Hanover, McConnellsburg, Shrewsbury and York. TrueNorth Crisis Intervention Services are accredited by The American Association of Suicidology (Adams and York counties) and licensed by the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
