Continue Reading Mobile Crisis Redesign VitAL is working alongside the Alabama Medicaid Agency and the Alabama Department of Mental Health to remodel Alabama’s Mobile Crisis System of Care. With the support of a CMS State Planning Grant, Alabama will coordinate longstanding efforts to expand access to robust and timely crisis behavioral health services, including 24-hour mobile crisis teams, emergency crisis intervention services, and crisis stabilization developed using evidence-based best practices in SAMHSA’s “National Guidelines for Behavioral Health Crisis Care”. The planning grant will build a plan for expansion of the existing Crisis System of Care, which will strengthen provider and systems capacity to implement qualifying community-based mobile crisis services statewide. The project will allow for a preliminary statewide community needs assessment to evaluate existing mobile crisis services with 24-hour mobile crisis, crisis intervention, and crisis stabilization, create a workplan to align and convert all existing mobile crisis teams and/or related services to the national guidelines of best practice, and research and develop state Medicaid authority to fund mobile crisis services utilizing a sustainable funding model for all costs associated with mobile crisis services.
