Group Name: Gerstein Crisis Centre – Telephone Support
Description: Gerstein Crisis Centre was established 25 years ago in Toronto to meet the recognized need for providing non-medical community based support reflecting the needs and wishes of people experiencing mental health crisis.
Crisis Workers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 416-929-5200. Our goal is to help callers who are experiencing a mental health crisis to work out some effective ways of addressing their immediate problems, and connect them to services that can offer ongoing support. We encourage self-referrals so that we can hear directly from people about what they are going through. Family, friends and service providers, including hospitals, may also refer people to our services by calling our Administration and Referral Line. This line may at times be answered by voicemail. Your call will be returned by a member of the Crisis Team within the hour.
Where: 100 Charles Street East | Toronto, ON M4Y 1V3
