What is the Community Crisis Integrated Team?
The Community Crisis Integrated Team (CCIT) is a group of community social and health care providers who work together to improve how people get the care they need in a way that is respectful, feels safe and looks at the whole person. Our partners respond to calls for help from people who are at risk of having or are having a mental health and addictions crisis. Our goal is to help people get the kind of help they need when they need it and to help prevent future crises.
Who, Where and When We Help
Our partners serve all ages and all genders in Dufferin and Caledon.
Our partners meet clients where they want: in the community, at home and by phone.
Staff from each of the partners hold regular meetings to decide what community supports and referrals people need in the short and long-term. By working together, with consent, partners hope each client has a better experience with the care and help they receive.
When responding to a crisis, we work together to:
- Offer the right care with the right partners and supports in the community and hospital
- Provide emergency department crisis assessments for Headwaters Health Care Centre
- Avoid unnecessary emergency department visits and mental health apprehensions
- Connect people to community supports and services
- Encourage and support the wellness of individual and their families
Real Life Successes
A homeless person was welcomed in a safe community organization to use a shower to stay clean during the pandemic.
A person received crisis support at a coffee shop where they felt safe enough to talk about their situation.
A family in crisis received better food security, safety planning, help with reuniting family, consistent case coordination and follow-up services.
A 17-year-old was trying to manage a bipolar single parent who was in psychosis within our community. Youth was referred to the crisis team in need of support, housing, and safety planning. Our crisis team was able to provide additional supports including clothing, groceries and a safe space to share their worries and fears. We also registered the youth with a family doctor.
A crisis worker and a client worked together to put supports in place, including supportive housing and professional health services, after a mental health crisis.
