Medical Crisis Counseling

Medical illness creates special challenges for patients and their families. Emotional distress at such times is normal reaction for many people.

Medical Crisis Counseling is a short-term, structured service that helps chronically ill patients and their families cope with the emotional issues they must face during long-term illness.

Medical Crisis Counseling can be helpful:

  • at the time of diagnosis
  • when leaving the hospital
  • when the illness worsens

The Patient and Family Services department at Maine Medical Center offers Medical Crisis Counseling as a resource to patients and families. 

For more information, please call the department at 662-2261.
