The Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team
The Mobile Crisis Rapid Response Team (MCRRT) model partners a uniformed police officer with an experienced mental health professional to respond to imminent 911 calls, as determined by Police Dispatch. The program provides persons in crisis, their families and caregivers, with a timely and appropriate crisis intervention.
The MCRRT attempts to streamline access to mental health crisis supports and helps reduce the burden of unnecessary referrals to the emergency department.
Service recipients of MCRRT include individuals presenting with symptoms of mental health illness, substance abuse, behavioral disorders or acute crisis situations.
The MCRRT model is one of the first ride-along models that help reduce the burden on emergency departments and acute mental health services, while ensuring that the level of care is accessible to those who require it most. MCRRT demonstrates improved healthcare and client experience during an imminent crisis situation.
