On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Mile High Station will be hosting Metro Crisis Services (MCS) Hope Matinee fundraiser and awareness luncheon with a theatrical twist.
The 2014 Hope Matinee is a luncheon you will not want to miss. MCS has wrapped real examples of crisis calls into a theatrical performance to show the attendees what it is like to receive a call, how their staff is trained to react and how the caller may react. Unless you have experienced a call from a person in crisis seeking help it is hard to picture by most individuals.
It is hard to give samples of real incidents and to allow the public to experience a real live call due to confidentiality laws. MCS has taken real incidents and will act them out giving as real of an experience as possible. The organization is hoping to take this opportunity to make their work “real” without jeopardizing the confidentiality of the callers. This confidentiality is what keeps them so successful.
The event will be held at the Mile High Station which is located at 2027 W Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80204, (720) 946-7721. For directions click here.
