Kitsap Mental Health Services’ Mobile Crisis Response Team (CRT)



Kitsap Mental Health Services’ Mobile Crisis Response Team (CRT) consists of Designated Crisis Responders (DCRs) who are available 24/7, 365 days a year.  DCRs help people suffering from a mental health and/or substance abuse disorder who may be a danger to themselves or others.  This includes aiding an individual to access services at the level of support needed to get immediate help. The Mobile Crisis Response Team’s DCRs provide emergency assessments and referrals to inpatient care, which may include, if necessary, involuntary detention in our evaluation and treatment center or other psychiatric facility or substance use treatment facility.  DCRs seek to assist people in crisis with the least restrictive services needed to support them in their recovery.
