What is the Peel Crisis Capacity Network (PCCN)
The Peel Crisis Capacity Network (PCCN) consists of 27 Peel Organizations that are partnered together to provide resources and consultation to individuals who have a developmental disability and/or dual diagnosis in times of crisis.
How can you make a referral?
Anyone with consent (individual, family member, friend or service provider) can make a referral for our services.
The Peel Crisis Capacity Network can be accessed between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm during regular business days through our crisis line at 905-273-4900.
If you are calling outside of these hours please contact our After Hours Crisis Support . They can respond to your immediate crisis needs and will connect you with a PCCN Staff member as soon as possible:
Individuals under the age of 18: 416-410-8615
Individuals over the age of 18: 905-278-9036
What can you expect when you call the Network?
We are here to help. Once you contact the crisis line, you will be connected to a PCCN staff member who will ask you some questions to understand what you are concerned about and what supports you might need in your current situation. We will listen to what you have to say. Depending on your specific needs, he/she will then work with you, and if appropriate, any service providers with whom you are already working, to help resolve your immediate concerns, and/or suggest and help you connect with other community services that could be helpful to you.
Upon making a referral, if more intensive support is needed in stabilizing crisis, PCCN may come out to meet with you to complete an assessment to further determine appropriateness for our service and gather necessary information to provide supports.
PCCN will develop an individualized support plan and work with you to implement the plan alongside community service providers in order to secure admission to appropriate and available Network services.
What services does the Network provide?
The Networks services are provided by a variety of organizations in the Peel region who have partnered together to create PCCN. Each organization provides a wide variety of services that you and/or your family may have access to in order to support your varying and ongoing needs.
