Board of Directors

Gerstein Crisis  Centre is a voluntary, community-based 24-hour mental health crisis intervention service which provides crisis support to adults 16+ living in the City of Toronto who are experiencing mental health crisis, including those whose crisis is compounded by serious substance use issues, involvement with the justice system and/or homelessness.   The Centre provides crisis intervention through a range of services and initiatives including a 24/7 telephone crisis line, a mobile crisis team, a concurrent crisis management and follow-up team and 24 residential crisis support beds at two downtown Toronto sites. The Centre provides training and education in the community in the areas of mental health crisis intervention and suicide intervention is involved in a number of wellness and recovery initiatives.  Gerstein Centre works within harm reduction and recovery based philosophies.

The Gerstein Centre is looking for volunteers for our Board of Directors, able to commit 3-5 hours per month for a minimum of one one-year term. The Board meets once a month. Currently, there are committees in the following areas:  Human Resources, Fundraising, Governance/Nominations and Finance. Expertise in any of these areas would be considered an asset.

Gerstein Centre is committed to equity principles and hopes to broaden the diversity of the Board. We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals who represent the cultural diversity of Toronto and from those with personal experience of the mental health system.
