Crisis Intervention Services

In the event of a mental health crisis, Mind Connections psychiatrists can provide 30-minute telephone consultations for crisis intervention. This service is meant to help a psychologically disturbed person escalating to aggressive behaviour. The interventions also guide the family how to deflect the situation or how to activate the process of organizing crisis admission to nearby hospital if it is warranted.
