Did you know? In B.C., one in five interactions with police involve someone with a mental-health disorder. To help people in crisis and to free police to focus on crime, a new crisis response team is now in Burnaby.
Mobile Integrated Crisis Response (MICR) teams are one type of service that pairs a police officer and a mental health professional to respond to mental health calls. Communities have long identified a need for crisis response services, and these new teams will help those who need it most.
