Counties received grants for mental health crisis teams

excerpted from Wheaton Gazette, 4-08

Traverse County is part of two successful grant proposals to improve the response to mental health crisis services in west central Minnesota.

Under the plan, five counties will receive a total of $664,000 to set up mobile crisis reponse teams to help adults and children, as well as add prevention and stabilization services. About $114,000 of the funding is for start-up costs, including, hopefully, monies to hire a coordinator to help get the project off the ground.

It is anticipated that 100 call-outs will be for children.

Mental health professionals and practitioners will be recruited from the existing community partners.

The counties are Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens and Traverse.
