About Mobile Response Teams (MRTs)
The MRT program is designed around troubled youth and young adults (25 and younger), within Baker, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Suwannee, and Union counties, who are in need of 24/7 crisis intervention services. The program’s goals are to lessen the trauma of crisis situations, particularly, diverting individuals away from ER’s and/or jail, and stabilizing them in the most conducive setting possible. During the initial crisis phase, a master’s level counselor responds at the crisis location 24/7 (or through Telehealth as requested), while a care coordinator establishes links to appropriate community resources, and a peer specialist regularly follows-up.
If you are experiencing a crisis, call the MRT Hotline.
It’s the same number for all the counties in which we serve:
