County of Marin Health and Human Services

Mobile Crisis Team

The mobile crisis team will operate Monday through Saturday from 1:00-9:00 p.m. This team is comprised of a licensed mental health practitioner and a peer provider. The team will be able to respond to individuals in the community who present in a crisis. Some of the referral sources are schools, police departments, and family members who are concerned about loved ones. This team will have the capacity to initiate a 5150 if warranted OR to offer crisis intervention, stabilization and linkage to appropriate community based services. In addition, the team will have the capacity to lift holds in certain circumstances.

Mental Health and Substance Use Services (MHSUS) changed its name to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS).  As such, all references in existing departmental policies and procedures to MHSUS can be understood to reference BHRS as well.
