WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CALL

 

Mobile Crisis response provides an immediate evaluation, triage and access to acute MH/DD/SA services, treatment and supports. These services include immediate telephonic response to assess the crisis and determine the risk, mental status, medical stability and appropriate response.

 

Be prepared to give the MCM team as much information as possible when you contact them such as:  name, date of birth, diagnoses, medications, Medicaid number, medical issues, brief psychiatric history, family issues and concerns, history of aggression, history of law enforcement involvement and current concern.

 

Mobile Crisis has responded to individuals experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, psychosis; individuals with suicidal or homicidal thoughts, children with behavioral issues and substance abusers in need of treatment. Mobile Crisis can respond to group homes, family care homes and adult care homes as well as to private homes, public locations and schools.

 

Our professionals are standing by for a telephone assessment and are able to meet face to face with an individual in crisis within 2 hours.
