Our SafeBed program provides short-term residential support to people in crisis who need more intensive crisis support. We provide short-term accommodation usually lasting up to one week. We also help with finding permanent housing, applying for income support, and anything else needed to help with the transition to stable housing.

For more information, please call us Monday to Friday 8:30AM to 4:30PM at 519-633-1781 or toll-free at 1-855-633-1781, or email us at crisis [at] cmhaelgin [dot] ca.

You can also access support outside of our regular business hours by contacting Reach Out, a bilingual 24/7 information, support, and crisis service for people with mental health or addiction needs living in Elgin, Oxford, Middlesex or London. Reach Out can link you to mobile crisis support workers in your area who can help you get access to a SafeBed. Call Reach Out at 519-433-2023 or toll-free at 1-866-933-2023.  You can also receive support by WebChat by going to Reach Out‘s website at
