Community Stablization

The definition indicates that the service is designed as a follow up to mobile crisis response or a step down from a higher level of care.  Is the service not available to individuals receiving services currently and the provider recognizes their need for community stabilization without initiating a mobile crisis response?  This definition also seems in conflict with the admission criteria outlined in 3.b.i

Language that provider must “engage with the data platform” is unclear.

In exclusion criteria, it states “Community based behavioral health services means Mental Health and ARTS services more intensive than standard outpatient psychiatric services”.  More clarification of this is needed.
