Date: December 11-12, 2018 (December 10 for participants shadowing NJ MRSS provider)
Location: New Jersey
Description: In this cooperative peer convening, (up to eight) participant teams will gather to learn about innovative ‘best practice’ models of mobile response and stabilization services (MRSS) that include home- and community-based stabilization and case management services, on-site face-to-face therapeutic response; assessment; crisis intervention and stabilization; psychiatric consultation; psychopharmacology; and referrals and linkages to other services and supports. Participant teams will gather in New Jersey for two days of collaborative work with peers, and experts from Connecticut, Milwaukee County Wisconsin, Nevada, New Jersey, and Oklahoma, to work on self-identified goals and strategies for developing, implementing and sustaining MRSS for children, youth, and young adults in their states and communities. There will also be an opportunity for 1-2 individuals from each participating team to shadow a mobile response team for 'hands-on' observation of New Jersey's approach, the day before the meeting begins.
Prerequisite: Accepted teams must view all three MRSS Best Practice Videos prior to attending the meeting on December 11. Videos are accessible here.
