METRO CRISIS SERVICES PRESENTS


Courage, Solutions and Live Theatre. A lunch time event unlike any other. Experience a day in the life of a crisis call center as actual callers’ stories are brought to life through interactive theatre.


Hope Matinee will feature a live theatrical performance – bringing to life the stories that MCS clinicians encounter every day in the call center.  For many in our community, it is hard to grasp the impact or “feel” what it is really like to be an individual in crisis, calling the Metro Crisis Line, or be a clinician responding to the call.  Because of the confidential and private nature of the work that MCS does, Hope Matinee will be our opportunity to make our work “real”, without jeopardizing the confidentiality that our callers value so much.
