The mobile crisis outreach involves a response team that will travel to any location in which a county resident is experiencing a crisis.
The goal of all mobile crisis outreaches is to provide triage/assessment, clinically appropriate crisis de-escalation, supportive counseling and solution-focused interventions.
To maximize the effectiveness of interventions and minimize the intrusion in the individual’s life, it is important to the crisis staff that the outreaches occur within the most naturalistic setting for the individual/family in crisis.
Crisis staff will work with the individual and/or family to determine the most setting to provide the service, whether that is in the individual’s home or another mutually agreed upon, safe/supportive place. Staff will make every effort to include family members or social supports that an individual believes would support a timely and effective crisis recovery.
