Maple Ridge B.C. – The mental health team will be enhancing police response to support those with mental health concerns.


The Mental Health Unit (MHU) is made up of two Police officers, whose goal is to provide enhanced support and follow-up to assist Frontline Officers with ongoing management of clients, both adults and youths, who generate multiple calls to police as a result of their mental illness.

The team has already established ongoing partnerships with mental health agencies including Assertive Community Treatment, Maple Ridge Mental Health, The Hub, Intensive Case Management Team and Alouette Addictions to ensure quality support, early intervention and bridging of services.

The team will identify high risk clients suffering with mental health issues and create strategies and response to reduce police engagements and increase public safety.

"We take great pride in the work that we are doing" states Cpl. Wilkinson, NCO in charge of the MHU. "We were already able to assist a youth in mental health crisis by expediting their assessment by months and connecting them to resources they urgently needed by advocating on their behalf through our established community partners".
