How Does MCI Work?

Any concerned person can make a call to the Mobile Crisis Intervention (MCI) team by dialing 1-877-750-3127. A mental health professional will take your call and will gather basic information that will help you and the MCI determine what type of intervention is needed and the best location for the intervention to take place. The staff person who takes the call may not be a member of the MCI and may ask you for a phone number where you can be reached by the clinician. The assigned MCI clinician will call back within 15 minutes to discuss the nature of the crisis and the location of the Youth who needs the intervention. A person who is under the age of 18 years will need to have a parent or guardian present during the intervention. This does not apply to Youth who are emancipated and considered mature minors. Interventions can take place in any safe, appropriate location in the community, including the home, foster placement, group home, or other living situation. Youth can be seen at school or at one of our community based-locations including police stations and the court. The MCI team will arrive at the agreed upon location within 60 minutes of ending the call. The MCI team will make every effort to de-escalate the situation and stabilization activities will be provided to help keep that Youth at home. All options will be discussed with the youth and family and arrangements for admission and transportation will be made for youth who need a 24-hour, level of care. A crisis safety plan will be provided for youth who remain at home and will include MCI follow-up contact for the 72-hours following the initial event.
