CRISIS HOTLINE AND SERVICES
Nassau County Mobile Crisis Team
The Team comes to you!
The Mobile Crisis team consists of licensed professional social workers and nurses who are specially trained to help individuals, and their families, with mental health problems.
If you or a family member is experiencing a mental health crisis call the Team. Social workers and nurses travel to homes, schools, work-sites and other locations in Nassau County.
The Team responds in the same day and provides supportive crisis intervention for children and adults who are experiencing an emotional disturbance, interpersonal crisis or psychiatric emergency.
Calling the Team is an alternative to calling the police or driving to a psychiatric emergency room when an individual is in crisis.
Team members assess individuals in their environment and evaluate their psychological condition.
The Team will make a referral to the most appropriate program, resource or facility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the individual.
In addition, the Team will follow up on all referrals to ensure that they took place, and to assist with any barriers or obstacles to getting treatment.
To access the Mobile Crisis Team call 117-TALK (227-8255). A social worker will take some information and a member of the Team will call you back for a brief telephone intake.
The Mobile Crisis Team responds seven days a week from 10:00am to 11:00pm.
From 11:00pm to 10:00am crisis counselors are available to speak with on the phone and the Mobile Crisis Team will follow up with callers the next day.
