The County Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) is an important resource available to those having mental health emergencies.
This program bridges law enforcement and social services to address crisis situations. The MCRT collaborates with law enforcement agencies in the County, including the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department. The community can also reach out to MCRT directly.
MCRT responds to individuals in crisis that exhibit mental health symptoms, may be suicidal, or at-risk and need an evaluation for psychiatric hospitalization. Teams are made of up licensed clinicians and therapists with training and expertise in crisis response. MCRT works closely with law enforcement, crisis hotlines, the community, and family members. The services include crisis screening, intervention, de-escalation services, and referrals to community resources.
MCRT services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to Santa Clara County residents.
To contact MCRT directly, please call:

(408) 379-9085 (for minors under age 18)
