Recognizing the profound impact of compassionate intervention, our Mobile Crisis Response Team was founded in 2018 as an oncall team to provide community members a sensitive alternative to law enforcement during mental health crises.
Our team works in tandem with our emergency response teams to report to situations where emphasizing de-escalation and forging genuine connections can be impactful and valuable to those in need. Our team links individuals with the necessary resources, ensuring both immediate relief and long-term support for the wellbeing of our community.
