About Crisis Help Network
Crisis Help Network is a project of Ian Archibald, seperate from, but supported by www.homeless.org.au through hosting and technical assistance.
"At the end of the day, the majority of people will go home to their families, partners, friends and sit down and have something to eat together; someone in crisis will at the end of the day not go home instead sit down and eat their hearts out by themselves." Ian Archibald 2003.
Crisis Help Network Website
The Crisis Help Network is the response of an Individual trying to access current and reliable information that would help with such issues as accommodation, food, and agencies relevant to his needs, and other problems he found while homeless in a system where information is either out of date, hard to find or was not considered relevant to him.
Crisis Help Network is an up-to-date and regularly up-dated web site dedicated to providing information about organizations able to help people in crisis. It is compiled and maintained by people who are or have been in crisis, and whose experiences are invaluable to the worth of this resource
The web directory addresses several issues surrounding the lack of continuity and access to up-to-date information available to individuals who are homeless, in crisis or at risk. Currently, information on services in the market place is fragmented or obscured to individuals who are not confident in navigating the internet. This web directory seeks to address these issues by offering information in a user-friendly cohesive platform.
Crisishelp Network would like to express their gratitude to the staff at the Homeless Drug Dependency Trial at flagstaff. Without their continued encouragement and advocacy this web site would not have come to fruition. Their insight and willingness only adds credence to the ethos and commitment that this program extends to individuals. The uniqueness and flexibility of this trial should not be underscored or dismissed; it is a template for real social change. In a system with echoes and ghosts of anachronistic doctrine and well heeled, intent individuals, the pathways to recovery that it offers are indeed characteristic of an innovative and well thought out approach to the current dialogue of addiction and treatment.
