Mass Behavioral Health Partnership ESP/MCI





The Emergency Services Program/Mobile Crisis Intervention provides you with crisis assessment, intervention, and stabilization services.  Instead of going to the emergency room, you can get these services in your home or at other locations in the community.  ESP/MCI services are available to people of all ages who are covered by MassHealth or Medicare.  You can also get these services if you are uninsured.  If you have a different health plan, you still may be able to get ESP/MCI services.  

We're Looking for More Resources in this Area. 
We are working to create an easily accessible and searchable database of community resources and organizations nationwide that offer crisis intervention services to be utilized as an alternative to calling the police. At the moment we are rapidly trying to verify leads to be posted to the site.
