Contact us at 414-257-7621 ~ A crisis team created to help children and teens in crisis.
Staffed by a team consisting of a psychologists, social workers, nurses, case managers and a consulting physician, the Mobile Urgent Treatment Team provides crisis intervention services on a 24 hour basis to families enrolled in the Wraparound Milwaukee Program. In addition, this team provides services to any family in Milwaukee County with a child who is having a mental health crisis when the behavior of the child threatens his or her removal from home, school, etc.
The Mobile Team goes to where the crisis is occurring, assesses the situation, and determines if the child’s behavior or mental health condition can be met with interventions in the home or whether temporary placement in a crisis group home or other emergency setting is required. The Mobile Team also assesses whether the child’s behavior constitutes a danger to that child or others requiring possible psychiatric inpatient hospitalization.
In addition to crisis intervention services, the Team can provide short-term case management and can link the child and family to other community services. The Mobile Team oversees the operation of an 8-bed crisis/respite group home, which can serve as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization or resource for the child to transition from the inpatient facility.
Operating hours are 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday and from 1:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. During all other hours, we can be reached via telephone through an on-call system.
