Mobile Crisis Services
Iowans in every county have access to mobile crisis services to receive immediate care in an emergency, such as if an individual is contemplating suicide. Through mobile crisis services, trained brain health experts travel to an individual wherever their crisis is occurring — whether it’s at home, at work or in school — to provide caring and confidential support. This free service ensures that Iowans receive care in a familiar environment. Response teams arrive in an unmarked car so callers may be more comfortable asking for help. Trained mobile crisis providers are best equipped to de-escalate brain health issues so individuals may be able to avoid being treated in a hospital in the immediate future where they might feel isolated, forgotten and even more anxious. Mobile crisis number for our region is 641-342-1742.
