The program offers a continuum of crisis services:

Service Description 24/7 Day time visits Evening visits
Crisis Line For individuals who require immediate crisis support.  The line is answered by a crisis support worker who will assess the nature of the crisis and the level of risk and arrange the most appropriate response.


Outreach Visits For individuals who need a more in-depth mental health assessment and safety plan.  Can be done by 2 crisis support workers or a crisis support worker and a specially-trained police officer in plain clothes and an unmarked car.  Can take up to 24 hours to arrange.



Rapid Response Triggered by a live 911 call that involves a mental health or addiction crisis.  Conducted by a crisis support worker and a uniformed officer in a police car (subject to availability.) A second uniformed officer will also attend in a second police car.
