Service Description: The CIT consists of highly skilled social workers specializing in crisis intervention and mental health. The team provides consultations to the ER physician for patients registered in the Emergency Department who are experiencing mental health and/or psychosocial crises, as well as emotional support to families of trauma or deceased patients in the ED.

In addition to assisting with the assessment process in the ED, the crisis worker provides crisis counselling and assistance with establishing the best possible plan of action for the patient (and their families) while respecting and understanding their cultural and spiritual needs. When necessary, the crisis worker consults and works closely with the psychiatrist-on-call in addition to the ER physician and nursing, and community partners such as police, coroner, counselling agencies, schools, CAS, detox, etc.

CIT is current and knowledgeable of community resources and other hospital programs and assist in linking their patients for ongoing care after discharge from the ED. If the patient requires admission to hospital, the crisis worker is available to assist family members who often require direction and emotional help with the crisis at hand.
