Traumatic Events Response Network (TERN)
TERN is the official community crisis response team of Washtenaw County. It is part of the Mental Health Annex of both the Washtenaw County and the City of Ann Arbor Emergency Operations Centers. It consists of a cadre of trained, mostly volunteer, human services and mental health professionals. TERN provides early crisis intervention services to traumatized people and/or groups of people in community settings throughout Washtenaw County.
