Adult Mental Health – Emergency and Crisis Services Integrated Mobile Crisis Response Team (IMCRT)

IMCRT is a collaboration between Child, Youth, and Family MH, Adult MHSU, and Greater Victoria police forces. Interdisciplinary MHSU clinicians work alongside plain-clothes police officers to provide a rapid, mobile, community-based response to people of all ages experiencing urgent/emergent mental health and substance use issues.

IMCRT provides short-term support and stabilization in order to manage the crisis and ensure continuity of care between the initial intervention and the involvement of follow-up services.

IMCRT operates from 1:00 p.m. to midnight 7 days a week.

Access is through the Vancouver Island Crisis Line at 1-888-494-3888. Physicians and other mental health professionals may access the team directly through a confidential pager number (provided by the Crisis Line upon request). Other access is through the police.

Anyone, including clients, can access this service directly by calling the Vancouver Island Crisis Line at 1-888-494- 3888.
