Foxborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council presents:
Come learn about Emergency Psychiatric Services!
Susan (Burton) Keays, LICSW, Program Director, Emergency Services of Riverside Community Care in Norwood, will review the scope of services offered by Riverside Community Care.
Among many other services, Riverside provides a Mobile Crisis Intervention Team. The program provides 24 hour-7 day a week mobile psychiatric emergency services. They offer round the clock telephone assistance and face-to-face crisis interventions in a variety of mobile locations, including schools. The staff is comprised of masters and doctoral level clinicians, psychiatrists and family partners, all with expertise in youth treatment.
The Mobile Crisis Intervention (MCI) team provides services to youth (under 21) who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis with a mobile, face-to-face response. Our team can meet with youth and their families at one of our three community-based locations or we can travel to homes, schools, and other locations with the goal of avoiding a hospital emergency room visit and unnecessary hospitalizations.
The MCI team remains involved with the family for up to a week for continued crisis intervention and to help the family connect with on-going behavioral health services and supports. The MCI services are for youth under the age of 21 who have MassHealth Managed Care Plans, as well as those who are uninsured.
