Sometimes things get a little too hot to handle. A young person may be in extreme distress over a situation at school or at home. Conflict in the home has increased to a new level and family members can’t talk to one another. Maybe the youth keeps running away or is at risk of harming herself.
Marymound’s Crisis Stabilization Unit provides a short term service designed to assist girls and boys and their families during times of acute psychosocial crisis. The goal of this program, part of the Youth Emergency Crisis Stabilization Service, is to stabilize the crisis situation and prevent young people from going into care, or, if they are already in care, to keep their placement from breaking down.
Young people and their families can access this program through the Youth Crisis Stabilization System at 204-949-4777 in Winnipeg or toll-free at 1-888-383-2776.
A six-place unit each for girls and boys
Clinical follow-up facilitators will assist children, families and their support systems and access to the services they need in order to carry out the intervention strategies developed by the Mobile Crisis Team.
How to Access the Crisis Program
You may call any time. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Crises are referred to the Mobile Crisis Teams who go to the family’s home to assess the situation, mediate if possible and then make recommendations based on the particular circumstances.
All services are accessed by calling 204-949-4777 in Winnipeg or toll-free at 1-888-383-2776 throughout Manitoba.
