There are two components to the mental health crisis response in the community to help people with serious mental health problems. This could include situational crisis, psychosis, severe depression or anxiety, or suicidal thoughts (not needing immediate medical attention).
If your substance use/addiction or mental health needs are a medical emergency, or if there is a concern you might hurt yourself or someone else, contact 9-1-1, or go to your nearest hospital emergency department.
If required, individuals may be directly transferred to the Mobile Crisis Team. The Mobile Crisis Team works closely with hospital, police, psychiatrists and hospital emergency rooms to ensure a safe and comprehensive response, keeping individuals in the safety of their communities when this is the proper course of action. Professionals in the community are provided with a direct phone number to the Mobile Crisis Team.
