The Four County Mobile Crisis Response Team (CRT) is a multi-disciplinary group of staff that are based in St. Cloud and Monticello and provide an array of community-based, immediate, mental health crisis services to children and adults experiencing a mental health crisis under the supervision of a mental health professional.  Services are provided to residents of Stearns, Benton, Sherburne, and Wright counties.

CRT services include:  Crisis Hotline, crisis screening, Face-to-Face assessment and intervention, crisis stabilization, crisis prevention planning, and residential adult crisis stabilization.  If needed the Crisis Response Team will travel to your home or a community location to de-escalate the situation and help the individual in crisis cope with immediate stressors.

Residential Adult Crisis Stabilization beds provide a short term, safe place to stay while working through a mental health crisis.  The unit has 24/7 staff availability.  Individual and group counseling is offered, as well as education to enable people to both manage and recover from mental illness.  All admissions are voluntary.  The unit  consists of five beds.  Screening is done by CRT staff with the ultimate decision made by the clinical supervisor.  Admissions are based also on bed availability.
