Crisis Response Team
The BStrong Together Crisis Response Team (CRT) is a group of mental health professionals and others who support the Barrington area community in the event of a community crisis event.
This could be a sudden death, a suicide, or another event that significant impacts our community.
In these situations, the CRT will establish a time and location for community members to come together to receive support, process their reactions, and learn about helpful resources. The CRT is available to respond to individuals immediately impacted by a trauma, as well as secondary contacts to the trauma (e.g. parents, neighbors).
It is the goal of the Crisis Response Team to help and support community members during a difficult or painful experience as they gather information, debrief and process their feelings, minimize further crisis reactions, and seek resources available to them as they continue through the critical experience.
The Crisis Response Team includes:
- CHAIR: Dr. Chris Bibby, Psy.D. – WithInsight Counseling
- CHAIR: Kyle Kick, Executive Director – BStrong Together
- Carol Angelescue, LCSW – The Barrington Center
- Kim Rapach, LCSW and Executive Coach – Mental Wellness Coaching
- Dr. Melissa Katz, Psy.D. – The Center of Emotional Wellness of the Northwest Suburbs
- Don Wink – Church of Atonement
