Opportunity Alliance Mobile Crisis Response Service



Mobile Crisis Response Service provides support, advocacy, crisis intervention, assessment, and assistance in facilitating access to emergency room services, which may result in an admission to a psychiatric hospital. Mobile Outreach promotes the quickest, most effective resolution of crises, assisting clients in remaining in their natural environment, thus minimizing the need for psychiatric hospitalization. Mobile Outreach is available to respond independently or to accompany police, responding to calls where an individual may be experiencing a mental health crisis.
