Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA Grace Lore is hosting an online information session on Dec. 4 that is open to Chamber members interested in learning more about Victoria's Community Led Crisis Response team.
The special unit responds to calls involving people experiencing a mental health crisis. It's an alternative to having police attend these calls. Instead, trained health professionals use their expertise to de-escalate the situation and provide needed care. The Chamber supports efforts to make our community safer for everyone.
"My office team and I are working with AVI and Canadian Mental Health Association to provide an opportunity for more people in the city to learn about what they do and how to access support, whether for themselves, a loved-one, or someone who they interact with at their business," Lore said.
The info session runs 7- 8:30pm, Monday Dec. 4. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to attend the virtual session.
