Everyone defines crisis differently because of his/her life experience and genetic make-up. Rather than judge whether you would call it a crisis, be sure to listen to the person confiding in you and let them determine that. Oftentimes, the essential ingredient is whether they currently have adequate coping skills and a support system to help them manage whatever situation they are in. It is also very important to assess whether they have a mental health condition (depression, mood disorder, anxiety) as that often physically decreases one's ability to cope.
