What is a crisis?

Wisconsin DHS 34 defines a crisis as a situation caused by an individual's apparent mental disorder which results in a high level of stress or anxiety for the individual or persons providing care for the individual or the public which cannot be resolved by the available coping methods of the individual or by the efforts of those providing ordinary care or support for the individual.
