Help is available 24/7 throughout the holidays

The holidays, while a season of joy, are also a time of stress. For families with challenges, stress can turn into distress and a mental health crisis. Should this happen, where can kids and parents get help when schools, doctors’ offices and social services are closed?

The Crisis Response Serviceoperated by Peel Children’s Centre is here to help 24 hours a day, even on holidays. Just call 416-410-8615from anywhere in Peel Region.

We offer free, immediate support for children/youth under age 18 experiencing a mental health crisis, as well as their parents/caregivers. Mental health crises may include, but are not limited to:

  • parent-child conflict
  • school concerns
  • suicidality
  • self-harm
  • substance misuse
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • depression, and
  • parenting concerns.

The Crisis Response Service provides:

  • immediate crisis stabilization over the phone
  • development of safety plans
  • in-person support in clients’ homes, the community or the office between 9 am and 9 pm
  • short-term, crisis-focused counselling, and
  • referrals and bridging support to other services in the community.

We encourage you to advise your clients, students, patients, constituents or members in Peel about our service.

You can order Crisis Response Service brochures, client wallet cards, and posters using our website form. Please include your mailing address and the quantity of the item(s) required.

Together we can ensure that families know how to get help when they are in crisis. Thank you for being part of our “Caring Community Working Together for Children and Youth.”
