Our Services

Monarch’s Mobile Crisis Management consists of the support, services and treatments necessary to provide integrated crisis response, crisis stabilization interventions, and crisis prevention activities for people who are experiencing an acute mental health crisis. Mobile Crisis Management services are available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Mobile crisis responders provide an immediate evaluation, triage and access to mental health care resources for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental illness or substance use disorders. Our goal is to promote symptom reduction, harm reduction, and to safely transition persons in acute crisis to appropriate crisis stabilization and detoxification supports/services. These supports, and services must be specified in a beneficiary’s Crisis Plan, which is a component of all person-centered plans. This service also includes crisis prevention and supports that are designed to reduce the incidence of recurring crises.
