MRSS is a short-term, intensive community-based support program that can include: safety assessments, de-escalation, skill building and linkage to ongoing support. It is FREE to families in Lorain County with children ages 2-20. The program's goal is to keep kids in their homes and with their families, and to ensure families are connected to appropriate and adequate resources.
A hallmark of MRSS is that the team responds to a family-defined crisis. If the caller/family deems the situation worthy of intervention, the team is deployed. The MRSS team is comprised of licensed mental health professionals, non-licensed trained mental health staff and peer support providers. In addition to the initial crisis response, the program also offers up to 6 weeks of stabilization services if needed.
