Mobile Crisis Response Teams (MCRT)
If you need help with a behavioral health crisis or know someone
who does, call the Access & Crisis Line
Mobile Crisis Response Teams (MCRT) provide in-person support to anyone, anywhere, experiencing a mental health, drug, or alcohol-related crisis.
MCRT dispatches behavioral health experts to emergency calls instead of law enforcement, when appropriate, with teams made up of clinicians, case managers, and peer support specialists.
If you need help or know someone who does:
- Call the County’s Access and Crisis Line (888) 724-7240
- An Access and
Crisis Line clinician will assess the situation for risk and safety
through a series of questions and may refer to MCRT or another
resource as appropriate.
