Children’s Mobile Crisis 
Services are provided to children and adolescents experiencing serious psychiatric or behavioral problems that jeopardize their current living situation.

The service is intended to support the individual and to strengthen the current living environment so the individual can be maintained during and beyond the crisis period. Interventions include Crisis Intervention and short-term counseling. These services are provided in the child’s home, community location, or outpatient facilities in order to facilitate a smooth resolution to the crisis.
