Mobile Outreach, Response, Engagement, and Stabilization (MORES) is a mobile intervention for children and adolescents ages 5 to 21 years experiencing escalating emotional or behavioral needs.
MORES Team responds to Family Defined Crisis. A crisis occurs when:
- One’s sense of balance is disrupted
- Coping and problem-solving skills that worked in the past are not working
- Life functioning is disrupted (family, living situation, school, and/or community environments)
- Crisis is defined by the person/family experiencing it
Interventions can include but are not limited to crisis intervention and de-escalation, counseling, behavioral assistance, skill building, medication management, and/or caregiver and youth engagement/support/stabilization services.
The service is intended to prevent placement into more restrictive settings, unnecessary court involvement, and declines in functioning.
