New: Wake Mobile Crisis Services in Mental Health
Hospital emergency rooms are overcrowded resulting in long waits for all patients. With generous support from Wake County, the Enhanced Mobile Crisis Management service pilot will be launched February 1, 2019. This community-based, team approach to crisis response will utilize licensed clinicians to provide supportive crisis response in collaboration with Wake EMS Advanced Practice Paramedics.
The clinician team will come to you and provide immediate evaluation, triage and access to services, treatment, and supports to effect symptom reduction, harm reduction, or to safely transition persons in acute crisis to appropriate crisis stabilization and detoxification supports and/or services. This new initiative offers additional resources for families and for adults and children experiencing a mental health or chemical dependency crisis. The integrated services are confidential, non-judgmental and respectful.
You are invited to learn more about this new service (Enhanced Mobile Crisis Management), how it works and how you can access it.
