Mobile crisis management and post-crisis planning services are meant to be short term and serve children ages 5 – 18 residing in Fulton County.
How does it work?
Requests typically come from school personnel who have utilized their resources but are unable to regain control of the child who may pose a risk to themselves or others. At this point, a mobile crisis therapist responds and develops a plan of care which generally involves safety planning, and coordination of care with other providers and treatment recommendations.
The immediate goal of mobile crisis is to de-escalate a crisis situation, stabilize family dynamics and prevent unnecessary emergency department visits or hospital admissions.
Oftentimes staff and family will determine that everyone just needs a break and the child is referred to Mobile Crisis Respite by their Crisis Therapist or other Family Counseling Center clinic staff.
For more information on mobile crisis services, contact Kiana Pollacek, Crisis Program Manager.
Any individual, regardless if they are an established client, from Fulton County, or connected to another agency, may walk in and request to meet with one of our trained crisis counselors.
This service is offered at our Gloversville clinic.
Crisis counselors are available Monday – Thursday, 8 am – 8 pm and Fridays, 8 am – 5 pm.
You may also call our main line and request a crisis counselor during regular business hours.
