Mobile Crisis Outreach Team – MCOT
MCOT provides immediate response to individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts, psychosis, or other perceived crises. The MCOT team works closely with law enforcement, local agencies, judges, hospitals and schools to provide assistance when called upon. The MCOT team assesses the needs of the individual in crisis to determine if the person’s needs should be met through inpatient care or if the individual can be safety planned with a family or friend. The MCOT team will follow-up until the crisis is resolved and will continue to work with the person to ensure their needs are met. The MCOT team will also provide information about community resources to assist the individual in the event the person’s needs are beyond the capacity that ACCESS can provide.
If assistance is needed, call the 24-hour hotline at 800-621-1693 or text “GO” to 741-741.
