Someone to Respond: Mobile Response Teams

Mobile Response Teams (MRTs) are available throughout Florida and can be reached by dialing 2-1-1. MRTs target youth and people under 25, and are trained to help respond during a behavioral health crisis. MRTs provide an array of crisis intervention services including screening, assessment, and linkage to community-based providers, safety or crisis plan development, and connection to appropriate levels of care. The specific team for your area can be found by visiting:
