Crisis Mobile Teams

Crisis Mobile Team (CMT) supports callers on the Milwaukee County Crisis Line and provides mental health crisis response and intervention services on an outreach basis to adults, on-site, in-person, face-to-face in the community. CMT clinicians respond as part of a multidisciplinary team to provide community and hospital-based assessments, support community members, assist law enforcement with mental health emergencies as requested, link individuals to resources, and follow-up appropriately.

Children’s Mobile Crisis (CMC) provides crisis intervention services to Milwaukee County youth under the age of 18. This team responds to a wide range of needs in homes, schools, and throughout the community, wherever children and families need help to reduce a crisis, solve a problem, or assess a need.

Crisis Assessment Response Team

The Crisis Assessment Response Team (CART) clinician will work in partnership with law enforcement for co-response to mental health emergency calls. CART responds to 911 dispatch and requests from other police officers or mobile clinicians for mental health emergencies. The focus of the services CART provides is to assist individuals to stabilize in the community, link them to appropriate resources and divert from detention or arrest. CART currently operates in collaboration with the Milwaukee Police Department, West Allis Police Department and Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office.

Why BHD?

Milwaukee County’s Behavioral Health Division provides community- and hospital-based services for people who are experiencing significant, potentially life changing, crisis situations where the clinician is required to quickly develop rapport, thoroughly assess the individual’s mental health and substance use needs, assist in stabilizing the crisis, and connect the individual to community-based resources.

  I’ve heard the Psychiatric Crisis Services (PCS) facility is closing. Is that true?

The Behavioral Health Division is evolving how we provide care in Milwaukee County. We’re bringing our services out into the community to meet residents where they are and better serve those in need. This will not impact non-police mobile and CART clinicians’ jobs. Through CART and non-police crisis mobile teams, the new mental health emergency center, partnerships with community health organizations to offer Access Clinics and much more, BHD is better equipped to provide the care our residents deserve.

To learn more about the future of BHD services, visit the Mental Health Emergency Center and the Acute Hospital pages of our website. Until the Mental Health Emergency Center is operational, the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division will continue to provide emergency mental health care to patients at its Psychiatric Crisis Services center in Wauwatosa.

  Will I remain in my job through the transition to a new facility?

Non-police mobile and CART clinicians’ jobs will not be impacted by the closure of PCS.
