Mobile Mental Health Services Expanding in MN 30 Mar 16

(MNN/St. Paul MN)  Mobile mental health services are expanding in Minnesota to help those in crisis.

State Deputy Commissioner of Human Services Chuck Johnson says a lot of people experiencing mental illness can go through periods where they’re doing better and periods where they’re having problems or having a crisis, and if we’re able to address these crises right at the front-end, immediately, we’re able to help people stay in the community and live more successfully in the community.

Mobile crisis services consist of local teams that offer in-home psychiatric services quickly to those in need.

The expanded coverage adds services in seven counties, including Kandiyohi, Meeker and Swift, and in two tribal nations, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and Red Lake Nation.
