Mobile Crisis is a short-term service that will respond by phone within 1 hour and attempt face-to-face contact within 24 hours to assess, stabilize, and link families to available supports and services with side-by-side support. Crisis referrals can come from provider agencies, the courts, child welfare, schools, self-referrals from families, etc. Families can utilize the service without needing an established diagnosis or previous involvement with the behavioral health system, which are common barriers to access for many families.
Members of the Mobile Crisis team include a team leader, mobile crisis professionals, and a peer support. The ultimate goals of the Mobile Crisis team are to connect the youth and families to community-based resources and to reduce the number of youths being placed outside of the home, arrested, or hospitalized due to a mental health crisis.
