Genesis of Aegis
aegis noun /ējis/
1) The power to protect or support a person or organization
Aegis is a national training provider with headquarters in Michigan. The system evolved and expanded from a crisis intervention model that was widely used in the mountain west. While incorporating under the new Aegis banner in 2013, the firm executed a national expansion. Aegis is powered by a team who has decades of experience mitigating crisis in a variety of clinical settings. Aegis was built around an overwhelming demand for new answers and better solutions.
Now, Aegis trains and certifies thousands of professionals across the United States. Aegis meets client demand by providing regular public and private trainings in various locations throughout the country. As a nationally recognized vendor, Aegis aligns with all state, federal and private guidelines and standards with particular emphasis on The Joint Commission alignment.
The Aegis System™ was written with a focus on solutions at point-of-care. Many of these practices transcend moments of acute crisis and positively impact day-to-day interactions between clients and care providers. Aegis solutions are intended to maintain clinical intentionality before, after, and during a crisis situation.
