MRSS is a short-term, intensive community-based support program that can include: safety assessments, de-escalation, skill building and linkage to ongoing support. It is FREE to families in Cuyahoga County with children ages 2-20. The program's goal is to keep kids in their homes and with their families, and to ensure families are connected to appropriate and adequate resources.
A hallmark of MRSS is that the team responds to a family-defined crisis. If the caller/family deems the situation worthy of intervention, the team is deployed. The MRSS team is comprised of licensed mental health professionals, non-licensed trained mental health staff and peer support providers. In addition to the initial crisis response, the program also offers up to 6 weeks of stabilization services if needed.
We believe that "strong families build strong kids." And to help support this mission, we offer several programs that assist families in handling and resolving stress while strengthening the family unit from the inside out. It is our philosophy that children and teens respond best when treated in a familiar environment that allows parents, siblings, guardians and teachers to comfortably participate and collaborate.
