Oakland County's new Youth Mobile Crisis Team launched this week. The service is available for children, youth, and young adults in crisis. The Youth Mobile Crisis Team is funded by Oakland Community Health Network (OCHN) with services provided by New Oakland Family Centers.
The team travels throughout Oakland County to meet youth at their home, park, or other public gatherings. The unit is for youth 0 - 21 who need help dealing with a crisis like social isolation, loss of coping skills, suicidal thoughts, self-harm or aggression, and property destruction.
New Oakland's Youth Mobile Crisis Team is available in Oakland County:
- Monday - Friday, 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
- Weekends & holidays, 1:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
The Mobile Crisis Team is not a 24-hour service.
