mobile crisis 24/7
  • Requiring mobile crisis be provided 24/7:  Requiring programs to provide 24/7 coverage may not be possible as programs are being implemented. 24/7 may not be possible due to work force shortages.  Providing some coverage, versus no coverage, should be allowable in order to benefit the community, as long as other service provisions are met. Alternatively, less than 24/7 could be allowable for a designated period of time of implementation and allowances made for good faith efforts to staff.
