Mental Health Support
In addition to Family Assistance Centre operations, Kenyon also recommends, and provides, Mental Health professionals to support both family members and staff who have responded to the incident. Kenyon Mental Health professionals are incident and crisis trained individuals specialising in dealing with sudden, unexpected death and mass fatalities. They are staffed and organised to work with your employees in conjunction with traditional Employee Assistance Programmes and Human Resources departments and can assist with conducting debriefings, leading group sessions and following-up on meetings with people involved in responding to disasters.
Kenyon’s Mental Health Special Assistance Team members can address the needs of the first responders and others who may have been initially exposed to the sights and sounds of the morgue, incident site and initial family interaction with the morgue and personal effects staff. They are also trained to work with local agencies to ensure appropriate, independent support is available to survivors, families and friends.
Kenyon’s Mental Health professionals can be deployed to respond to incidents of any scale and at any capacity. Beyond providing on-site care for families and staff at a Family Assistance Centre, our professionals can respond to singular employees affected by incidents, provide telephone support to those who choose not to meet in person and more.
