Help is just a call away for anyone in need

A crisis can happen when an individual cannot cope with either their feelings or their situation. This state of crisis is not likely to improve and may worsen if there is no one to turn to. Anyone, at anytime, may have a crisis and need assistance.

The Brant Mental Health Crisis Response System works in conjunction with the Mental Health Crisis Support Program at St. Leonard’s Community Services – Addictions and Mental Health to provide a continuum of Crisis Services for Brant County. To access St. Leonard’s Crisis Support Line call: (519) 759-7188 or Toll free: 1-866-811-7188
