The Oakland Community Health Network is expanding its intensive crisis stabilization services for children with serious emotional disturbances who don’t have Medicaid.
The health organization recently received a $150,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services for its youth mobile crisis team. The program was started in 2018 to assist kids, teens and young adults who are in a mental health crisis. Oakland Family Services provides the program while the Oakland Community Health Network distributes the funds.
Available from 2 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, the mobile team can bring a therapist to the child’s location, offer on the spot counseling, coordinate future mental health care and make referrals for ongoing services. Teams arrive within 60-minutes of when they are called.
The Oakland County Youth Mobile Crisis Team also works with the mental health agency Common Ground, hospital emergency departments, law enforcement, school districts and other partners to offer support to youth and families during and following a crisis.
To request a visit from the Oakland County Youth Mobile Crisis Team, call 877-800-1650.
