Join The Team
KCCRB Kentucky Community Crisis Response Team
Through the coordination of KCCRB staff and regional team coordinators, team members respond to critical incidents and disasters within their local region, providing disaster behavioral health services. KCCRB maintains a statewide team of professionally trained volunteers who stand ready to respond. KCCRT includes behavioral health professionals, Fire, EMS, law enforcement, faith based, school, public health and others approved by the Board.
KCCRB Disaster Behavioral Health (DBH) Group
In the event of a large-scale public health emergency, the need for surge capacity of health and medical systems would be critical. Through the K HELPS system public health officials can register health professionals, apply emergency credentialing standards, and allow for the verification of the identity, credentials and qualifications of prospective volunteers.
Applicants interested in applying to be a DBH volunteer must be a licensed/certified psychologists, counselors, social workers, or therapists to meet the credentialing standards of a disaster behavioral health volunteer. Disaster Behavioral Health Outreach Personnel will triage, assess, provide psychological first aid, and make referrals, consistent with the level of individual needs under direction of KCCRB Disaster Behavioral Health Coordinators or Strike team leaders.
