Mobile Response and Stabilization Services now 24 hours

A response team on the go – now 24/7.

This is the mission of Mobile Response and Stabilization Services (MRSS) at the Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority (SCCMHA).

Formerly known as the Mobile Urgent Treatment Team, MRSS is a service offered by SCCMHA to respond to mental health crises on the phone or in-person from anyone in the greater Saginaw community. The service was originally used to help only the population of youth served by the SCCMHA network and their families, but has now expanded to all Saginaw County residents of any age and they do not need to be in active treatment with any SCCMHA network provider.

MRSS is activated when someone reaches out for help during a mental health crisis, whether at home or anywhere in Saginaw County.

After a series of questions identifying any potential safety concerns, a team is dispatched to the location where the crisis is occurring to help de-escalate the situation.

24-hour phone support has been available since early November, however SCCMHA has fully staffed a team able to provide 24-hour in-person support.

Teams are staffed with master’s- and bachelor’s-level social workers to aid our community members and consumers in need.

Help is just a phone call away.

MRSS can be reached at (989) 272-0275, 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week, including holidays.
