Our multidisciplinary staff provides mobile crisis intervention where it’s needed, when it’s needed – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at Advocates clinics, in homes and schools, or other community settings.

Our approach to crisis stabilization and resolution focuses on engaging individuals and, when appropriate, family members or other supportive people in their lives. Together we coordinate the most effective and personalized treatment as soon as possible.
