Our Mission
Meet the Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT)!
The Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) is a collaborative partnership between the Pembroke Regional Hospital’s Mental Health Crisis Team and the Ontario Provincial Police. The teams consist of two individuals – a uniformed OPP officer and a crisis worker, who will jointly respond to calls for service that are in relation to mental health, addictions, or an individual in crisis. This partnership allows for the officer to focus on safety, while the crisis worker can aid in de-escalating the situation by supporting the individual through appropriate crisis intervention and completing required assessments. A significant importance is also placed upon connecting individuals and families to appropriate community resources and completing follow-ups as required.
