About Us

Mobile Crisis Teams are a City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County collaboration that responds to individuals experiencing a nonviolent behavioral health crisis that necessitates a 911-response.

The six Mobile Crisis Teams (MCTs) provide specialized responses to 911-calls involving a behavioral health element. This is a co-responder model: two-person response teams with an MCT trained law enforcement member and an MCT trained master’s level behavioral health clinician.

Subcommittee: Crisis Services

Status: Implemented February 2018

How can I get help from a Mobile Crisis Team?

Currently, Mobile Crisis Teams (MCT) only respond to calls in the 911 system. When someone in crisis calls 911, the dispatcher will ask questions to determine if they are appropriate for an MCT response. MCT’s can also be requested by field officers that are on scene of a call.
