As a result of COVID-19, and related directions from the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario, Gerstein Crisis Centre has made some changes to our in-person services. Our telephone lines will continue to operate at full capacity as usual so please call us 416 929 5200 if you are in crisis.  However, at this time mobile team visits and new house stays will not be offered until further notice.  We hope these changes will be short-lived and services will return to normal as soon as possible.  

The health and safety of our clients, our staff and our community is our priority. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide any service updates on our website. Thank you for your understanding – stay well.
