Best Mobile Mental Health Heroes

Mobile Crisis Outreach Team

Having a mental health crisis – or know someone going through it? Who you gonna call? Integral Care's Mobile Crisis Outreach Team – MCOT for short. This team of master's-level clinicians is trained to travel into the community to help folks in need of mental health services where they’re at. What’s more, a visit from MCOT is not a one-and-done deal. Instead, the program offers follow-up counseling and medication services for up to 90 days, with the goal of connecting folks to long-term care. Proof that not all heroes wear capes – capes would just get in the way anyway.
