Mobile Crisis Units and Services
A mobile crisis unit can provide help in a crisis over the phone or at a person's home. A worker will assess the situation, help lessen the present crisis and decide on the best way to deal with the issue. Both new and existing clients receive a psychiatric consultation if needed. They are assessed and treated on the spot and connected with other useful services.

To reach a mobile crisis unit, call 911 or contact your local hospital, community mental health agency (CMHA) or Home and Community Care (formerly CCAC).
