211 or 911 // Toronto Community Crisis Service: CMHA

February 15 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Join us for our fourth and final presentation on the pilot program, highlighting the unique work being done by CMHA in Toronto’s Northwest communities.

The Toronto Community Crisis Service is a 3 year pilot project run by the City of Toronto’s Police reform initiative. The Canadian Mental Health Association – Toronto branch launched in July 2022 in northwest Toronto.

TCCS is a non-police lead crisis service for anyone dealing with a mental health or addiction crisis. The objective of the program is to reduce the harm that disproportionately impacts Black, Indigenous, racialized, LGBTQ2S+, and other marginalized groups. Post Crisis Case Management is available for clients who connected with the team during crisis. The case management services are up to 6 months and works to address barriers that have caused crisis (social determinants of health).
