Someone to Respond to a Behavioral Health Emergency: Mobile Crisis Teams
Wednesday, March 9, 2022 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Counties and their partners play an important role deploying mobile response units to stabilize, evaluate and support community members experiencing a behavioral health emergency. This face-to-face, community-based approach triages and assesses a person’s needs while developing a plan to address the underlying drivers of the emergency. Some counties utilize teams pairing a health professional with a Crisis Intervention Team-trained police officer. Other counties have implemented a civilian-only team composed of health care specialists, social workers and peer supports. Many counties also employ both. This webinar provides an overview of the importance of mobile response units and insights from counties implementing innovative practices.
