NYGH and Toronto Police Service: A community partnership
North York General Hospital has partnered with the Toronto Police Service to launch a new Mobile Crisis Intervention Team (MCIT).
MCITs consist of a specially trained police officer and a mental health nurse who respond to 911 emergency and police dispatch calls, 7 days a week between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. In this program, the police officer and the registered nurse respond to calls for assistance for individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis.
