ABOUT US

Mobile Crisis Prince Albert is a community based not-for-profit organization providing services to Prince Albert and area since 1977. Crisis intervention workers are available after-hours 4pm-8am, Monday to Friday and 24 hours per day on weekends.

 

The mandate of Mobile Crisis is to provide:

  • an integrated, comprehensive emergency intervention service to Prince Albert and region

  • service in periods of time when there is little or no access to health and social services

  • a single access point for after-hours health and social services in Prince Albert and region

  • telephone information and referral.

What is considered a crisis will differ from person to person but generally is any event that is going to, or is expected to, lead to an unstable and dangerous situation. Mobile Crisis is called to intervene during some of the most vulnerable times of a life, providing support and connecting people to ongoing services at the time they need it most.

With the exception of sexual assault counselling, Mobile Crisis does not maintain ongoing client files and does not do follow-up with clients unless by  their request or by request from a community agency.

 

Mobile Crisis employees are crisis intervention workers that have front-line experience dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault, grief, suicide risk assessment, child protection and addictions. Their education, training and experience equips them to deal with an immediate crisis while also maintaining an awareness of the support services provided by existing partner agencies so they can connect people to the ongoing services that may fit the need.

 

 

Mobile provides responsive, culturally appropriate services to our clients by phone, in their homes, the police station, jails, shopping malls and anywhere in the community as required. Much of the work is carried out in the client's environment. Workers are respecting of client culture, wishes and decisions. The intent is to help: in and through crisis, to improve physical, mental emotional and spiritual health, promoting individual, family and community accountability, responsibility and control. 

The purpose of Mobile Crisis to be sure someone is there to provide immediate and urgent support before a situation escalates or ends in disaster.  One central goal of intervention is to prevent the long-term affects caused by emotional or physical stress of a personal, family or community crisis. The nature of crisis intervention is to intervene at the time of crisis to avoid further trauma, reducing the need for longer term and more costly services at a later date. 

The point of when crisis occurs is the time (for many, the only time) that people may be receptive to accepting help and to referral to outside agency that may assist in resolving problems. Often, intervention at the point of crisis is more effective than trying to intervene later. The object of crisis intervention is to defuse volatile situations and ensure a safe setting, buffering victims from additional stress. Workers help in organizing and mobilizing family and community resources to assist the victim toward as healthy a level of functioning as possible in daily living.
