MOBILE CRISIS RESPONSE: Ted Parsons spoke with high regards the importance of this program. Capital Area Counseling and law enforcement will work together to determine if someone is in need of mental help, or if a situation can be defused. CACS agrees to provide Mobile Crisis Response services within three miles of the city limits. They will provide the necessary staffing, program supplies and administrative support. This shall include on-call mental health professionals as needed to provide crisis intervention services to individuals in need. Hughes and Stanley Counties will pay for Mobile Crisis Response on call time as well as response and follow up services. Hughes and Stanley Counties will split the costs of the on call time between the two counties on a pro rata basis. That split will be based on the pro rata split of the prior year responses to similar cases.
To start, the program will run 3 nights a week starting Friday at 8 A.M. through Monday at 8 A.M. CACS will provide each County a monthly itemized statement for the services rendered which will contain the number of contacts and outcome or referral data.
