IN AN EMERGENCY
If you or a family member needs urgent help, call 911 right away.
Go to the emergency department closest to you.
A psychiatric emergency is when a person is in immediate danger to him/herself due to compromised thinking and/or judgement. A psychiatric emergency may require hospital-based treatment.
IN A CRISIS
A mental health crisis does not necessarily require hospital-based care and can be supported in the community by a team of mental health care providers. Examples include thoughts of suicide, distorted or psychotic thinking, intense anxiety, depression or the inability to cope.
If you are experiencing a mental health or addictions crisis:
- Call 902.429.8167 or 1.888.429.8167 (toll-free) for the Mental Health Mobile Crisis Team.
