Crisis Intervention Team

When a person enters a Lakeridge Health Emergency Department in need of mental health assistance, the Crisis Intervention Team is there to help.

Check in with the Emergency Department Triage Nurse to access a member of the Crisis Intervention Team. Team members meet with individuals and his/her family or support team to discuss immediate concerns and review options.  In most cases, a person is discharged with a follow-up plan, while others may be admitted to the Inpatient Mental Health Program.

We strive to offer effective coping strategies and follow-up and referral options, either within Lakeridge Health or in the community.
