Ontario Connecting People in Lambton County to Mobile Mental Health Services

$2.5 million investment in new mobile crisis response team to provide faster, more convenient access to specialized supports

May 08, 2024

WYOMING — The Ontario government is investing more than $2.5 million over three years to launch a new mobile crisis response team in Lambton County to make it easier and more convenient for people experiencing homelessness or mental health and addictions crisis to get the support they need. This is one of three innovative pilot programs the government is launching that use mobile crisis response teams to expand access to specialized addictions care in the community, avoiding unnecessary visits to emergency departments and police involvement.

“People facing mental health and addictions crisis require immediate response and help connecting to longer-term care options,” said Michael Tibollo, Associate Minister of Mental Health and Addictions. “Our government is funding innovative programs like this one in Lambton County as a critical step to filling gaps in mental health and addictions care, addressing the surge in demand for substance use services and helping ensure vulnerable people connect to high-quality care where and when they need it.”
