Mobile Crisis Response Teams (MCeRTs)

Mobile Crisis Teams provide guidance and support to adults and children who are experiencing a mental health crisis.  The teams work closely with law enforcement to reduce the likelihood that a person experiencing a mental health crisis is unnecessarily placed in a more restrictive environment, like jail, a holding facility, hospital, or inpatient treatment.  

  • Response teams are available in all 82 counties and can be accessed by calling the toll-free numbers that are answered around the clock by Licensed Therapist, Peer Support Specialists., and Community Support Specialist.  
  • Response teams respond whenever a person is experiencing a crisis or at a designated location, like a local hospital.
