Mental health crisis team

Individuals who present to the emergency department and are experiencing a mental health crisis will be assessed by a crisis worker. Treatment and recommendations will be made in consultation with a physician.


Urgent care

Urgent care includes crisis assessment and brief intervention aimed at resolving immediate mental health crises for individuals who may have presented to the emergency department but did not require admission to hospital.
