Mobile Crisis Response Services Expanded in NL
Both the Department of Health and Community Services and the RCMP have teamed up to establish more mobile crisis response teams throughout the province.
Teams have been added to Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor and Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
There were already teams in St. John’s, Corner Brook and Labrador West in collaboration with the RNC. The Corner Brook team is also expanded to include the Bay of Islands, communities west to Gallants, and to communities east, including Deer Lake.
Each team consists of a mental health care worker, such as a social worker or registered nurse, and a police officer, working together to respond to people in crisis.
