A Mobile Crisis program that has helped hundreds of people experiencing a mental health crisis in Douglas County is expanding.
Adapt Integrated Health Care’s Mobile Crisis team was created through a partnership with the city of Roseburg in January 2019 and was originally funded by a federal Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program grant. Now, a new Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration grant obtained by Adapt has allowed the program to expand from 11 hours a day to 17 hours a day. Additionally, Mobile Crisis now serves all of Douglas County — even the most remote areas.
