Mobile Response Stabilization Service (MRSS) is a rapid mobile response and stabilization service for young people who are experiencing significant behavioral or emotional distress and their families.
MRSS is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is delivered face-to-face at the young person’s home, school, local Emergency Department (ED), or another location in the community.
The purpose of MRSS is to help youth and families build needed skills to ensure that future distress is less frequent and less intense. MRSS consists of a series of three stages: triage and screening, mobile response, and stabilization.
Interventions are designed to maintain the young person in his/her current living arrangement and to stabilize behavioral health needs to improve functioning in identified life domains. This Mobile Response Stabilization Services (MRSS) Took Kit, a collaboration between the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) and the Center for Innovative Practices (CIP) at Case Western Reserve University, is designed for the new generation of MRSS care providers.
