NH Rapid Response Access Point for
Behavioral Health Crisis Support
As a community mental health center, we recognize that a mental health crisis can take place at any time. For persons experiencing a mental health or substance misuse crisis, immediate access to the proper care will help to stabilize symptoms and get them back to a normal routine as soon as possible.
Each individual situation is different; some people may only need to resolve an issue by telephone. Others will need a face-to-face assessment, in which case the statewide Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) service, available around the clock, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, is able to dispatch a team to arrive at the caller’s location, wherever that location may need to be. The team will conduct a comprehensive assessment and decide upon an immediate intervention plan to ensure the safety of the person or persons in crisis. In addition, we now have 2, two-bedroom apartments available within our MCRT services facility in Nashua. Four individuals are able to stay in the apartments for up to 7 days to regroup and make a plan with our mental health professionals, who monitor the apartments 24 hours a day.
All persons who contact the crisis support line are offered a referral to follow-up care services from the appropriate professionals, to ensure that they receive the highest level of care to remain stabilized and work toward recovery.
Now, effective January 1, 2022, the 24/7 NH Rapid Response Access Point services are available to anyone living in the State of New Hampshire. One phone call connects individuals to the help they need, when they need it. No matter where a resident lives in New Hampshire, they’re covered to ensure that no one is ever alone!
