Update on Mobile Crisis Response Team

Views: 56

The newly formed Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) program launched on March 22nd 2021.  This is a joint initiative between Aylmer Police, Elgin OPP, and Canadian Mental Health Association.  The program allows for the CMHA worker to attend calls for service with police as well as conduct follow-ups with persons that are or have been in crisis.  In the first (2) weeks of the program being up and running, Aylmer Police alone,  have utilized the MCRT team on (7) occurrences to provide individuals mental health support, advice and or intervention.  The success of this program in the first (2) weeks shows how worth while and necessary this resource is for our community.
