Abstract: Mobile Crisis assessment, evaluation, and intervention of patients in psychiatric crisis in their homes or community with goal to link patients to mental health services and to serve as liaison to reengagement in mental health care. This mobile crisis team covers the Community District 8 in Manhattan, New York Upper East Side.
Background: Mobile Crisis Teams were created to provide interim psychiatric services in a patient's home and to prevent Emergency Room utilization and/or hospitalization. This Mobile Crisis Team initiated community outreach in June 2015. The results will be based on data collected from January 2016 - December 2016.
