Mobile Outreach for Youth

Mobile Outreach, Response, Engagement + Stabilization (MORES)

With our enhanced crisis response for children, adolescents and families, you can expect:

  • Immediate telephone support.
  • Reduced response time for situations requiring an onsite mobile crisis team to be dispatched.
  • Short-term crisis management until the crisis is resolved.
  • Referral and connections to follow-up services.
  • Support and advocacy to identify needs and crisis planning.
  • Someone to walk with you and your family.

MORES is a team-based crisis response intervention for children and adolescents ages 3 to 21 years old who are experiencing escalating emotional and/or behavioral needs. We can provide the following supports:

  • Access to a licensed clinician trained in child and adolescent interventions.
  • Access to a Family Support Partner (an individual with lived experiences of caring for a child with behavioral health challenges) who provides support and resources to the youth and family.
  • Access to psychiatric consultation.
  • Access to care management to provide connection to needed resources.
  • Up to 4 weeks of follow-up care after the onsite crisis response to assist the family and youth in obtaining services.

The goals of our program are to:

  • Support and maintain youth in their homes and communities.
  • Promote safe behavior in youth in their homes and communities.
  • Reduce admissions to emergency departments.
  • Reduce longer term placements in residential settings.

Some of the proven outcomes of the MORES program include:

  • Increased access to the behavioral health system.
  • Reduction in residential setting placements.
  • Reduction in legal involvements.
  • Reduction in dangerous behaviors.
  • Increased care in less restrictive settings.
  • Increased family/caregiver advocacy and support.
