Crisis Safe Bed Program
The Crisis Safe Bed Program provides supportive, short-term mental health residential placement to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis who have come into contact with police. This program aims to provide individuals with comprehensive, community-based support, diverting individuals from the justice system and potential incarceration, and/or avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations. This program is available by police referral only.
