A partnership with Sault Area Hospital has our community at the forefront of supports for people suffering from mental health issues.
Our Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team (MCRRT) utilizes this partnership to provide immediate support for someone experiencing a mental health and/or emotional disturbance in our community. A uniformed officer and Crisis Staff member (Registered Nurse or CRISIS Social Worker) respond to active incidents and are able to make an assessment to determine the best course of action to help the person in crisis.
In partnership with a number of other community agencies, we are attempting to decrease the frequency of further crisis and prevent further incidents. This model provides clients with the necessary resources, knowledge and skills.
If you have concerns about the mental health of a family member, friend or loved one, Crisis Services is available through Sault Area Hospital (SAH). SAH services are free and confidential. You can contact Crisis Services at 705-759-3398 and a skilled Crisis Worker can help you and them through challenges they are facing.
If you believe there is an imminent risk to someone's safety, you can call 9-1-1 or 705-949-6300 and Sault Police personnel can respond.
