I Randomly Met a Peel Police Mental Health Crisis Team

I was at the local car wash minding my own business when I ran into the Peel Police Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team (MCRRT).

I thought it was pretty cool and a STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION when it comes to Mental Health response in Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon.

I briefly spoke to Officer Soodan and his mental health partner (whose name I unfortunately, forgot to ask).

Also, this was a very brief conversation. Much of what I talk about in this video are my own views, based on my own research, and some was from the very short conversation we had.

Maybe in the future, I could sit down and talk with someone who works in the field to actually get them to talk about their work because I think it’s eye-opening and also very cool, that they’ve taken this step.

It’s a step in the right direction.
