Unity Point Health CICS Mobile Crisis Response Team

 

https://www.unitypoint.org/desmoines/crisis-services.aspx

To access the Mobile Crisis Response Team, anyone within the 11-county region may call the Crisis Center at 1-844-258-8858. The service is available to all ages.  Anyone experiencing a crisis can access the crisis line, whether it is adolescent behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, substance use, suicidal thoughts and everything in between. Trained phone responders will assess the situation and deploy the Mobile Crisis Response Team if an in-person response is deemed to be necessary or helpful.

A trained two-person team will leave as soon as they have been dispatched and will respond to the scene within 60 minutes. Once onsite, the on-call counselors are able to perform crisis assessments and will take the necessary time with the client
