The Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) is a partnership with eight different police departments in Westchester County, including Greenburgh, White Plains, Tarrytown, Elmsford, Hastings-on-Hudson, Ardsley, Irvington, and Dobbs Ferry. MCRT offers support to individuals in crisis to provide brief intervention and facilitate access to other crisis/behavioral health services. Dispatched and deployed through the police department, MCRT provides appropriate care and support to help individuals experiencing a behavioral health crisis avoid unnecessary emergency department use and hospitalization. MCRT offers an assessment of behavioral health symptoms and crisis-related needs, development of a safety plan or crisis prevention plan, therapeutic communication, referral and linkage to appropriate community services, and more.
Please note: Service is only deployed through police dispatch and is not accessible by contacting MHA for support.
If someone is in imminent danger of hurting themselves or someone else, please call 911.
Crisis assistance and resources are also available through the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline - dial 988 to reach trained individuals 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If you are a current MHA client experiencing a crisis or need immediate assistance, please call 914-266-2922.
