Mobile Crisis Services
We operate two community mobile crisis teams as part of our Comprehensive Emergency Psychiatric Services. These teams provide care to patients who are either unable or unwilling to receive continuing out-patient psychiatric services. These teams, comprised of a coordinator, certified social worker, and psychiatrist, visit the homes of both recently discharged patients, as well as newly referred patients seven days a week. The purpose of the Mobile Crisis Team is to perform initial screenings or on-going assessment and stabilization.
