About the Toronto Community Crisis Service

The TCCS provides free, confidential, in-person mental health supports from mobile crisis worker teams to Toronto residents 16 years of age or older 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Launched as a pilot in early 2022, the service provides a non-police-led model of mental health crisis response that is community-based, client-centred and trauma informed. Mobile crisis teams are currently available in four areas of Toronto, and the service will expand city-wide by the end of 2024.

The expansion of the Toronto Community Crisis Service is one of the first-year priority actions in the SafeTO: Toronto’s Ten-Year Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. More information about SafeTO can be found on the City’s website:
