In partnership with San Diego County Behavioral Health, MCRT brings rapid crisis support to people in the community delivered by a dedicated team of mental health professionals. Once all phases of our program are opened, we will have a dispatch team, an admin team, and van-based mobile crisis teams serving five regions of San Diego County (South, Central, East, North Inland, North Central). MCRT services include crisis triage, screening, assessment, in-person crisis intervention and stabilization, and linkage to ongoing supports. If clinically indicated, the team will also provide transportation for people to county-designated behavioral health sites for further assessment, evaluation, and treatment.
