Mobile Treatment Services provide assertive outreach, treatment, and support to individuals with mental illness who may be homeless, or for whom more traditional forms of outpatient treatment have been ineffective. Service is provided by a multidisciplinary team, is mobile, and is provided in the individual's natural environment (eg home, street, shelters). Mobile Treatment Services are also available for children, adolescents, and their families who require more intensive intervention in order to clinically stabilize the child's or adolescent's psychiatric condition, to promote family preservation, and/or to return functioning and quality of life to previously established levels as soon as possible. Services provided include psychiatric evaluation and treatment, clinical assessment, medication management/monitoring, interactive therapies, support with daily living skills, assistance with locating housing, and case management. Corsica River Mental Health Services operates the Mobile Treatment Team for Mid-Shore Maryland.
