Join us for a three-session series about mobile crisis outreach teams (MCOT) with CARE TA Center partner RI International. Building on the first presentation regarding Mobile Crisis Units 101, which provided an overview of MCOT models, this second presentation will explore the ways to operationalize MCOT services. Audiences will learn the staffing models, training needs, and infrastructure necessary to deploy Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams utilizing SAMSHA’s National Guidelines for Behavioral Health Crisis Care.
