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 services. The Centre is currently offering a 24 hour telephone crisis line, virtual face to face support, wellness checks and short term follow-up support.  Mobile team in person visits in the community 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.
