What is the Community-Led Crisis Response Team?
The Community-Led Crisis Response Team (CLCR) is a peer-assisted care program and a mobile crisis response team led by persons with lived/living experience and mental health professionals, who are able to de-escalate crises and develop community care plans with persons experiencing crisis.
The CLCR Team is an alternate approach to responding to someone in crisis that focuses on health, well-being and community support. Utilizing a community-based, client-centered, trauma-informed response, a peer-assisted model of care has been proven to help individuals navigate to mental and social care services and reduce engagement with the justice system and emergency services.
CLCR services are currently delivered between 2pm and 9pm, Monday through Friday. The team can be reached at 250-818-2454.
CLCR is a program of AVI Health and Community Services, and is funded by the Province of British Columbia and the Canadian Mental Health Association.
