Family Crisis Intervention Services

Purpose


The function of the Family Crisis Intervention Unit (FCIU) is performed by Atlanticare Behavioral Health Services (MRSS) effective December 1, 2011.

How They Help


This service assists families in crisis through family counseling and / or referral to appropriate agencies in the community. Families in crisis may be experiencing parent-teen conflicts, teen runaway, truancy or other behaviors or conditions that endanger the family unit. MRSS responds to the family’s home or location within 1 hour to meet with members of the family who are involved in the conflict 24 hours a day.

MRSS can access in-home counseling services, behavioral assistance for the youth and Cape May County Family Court for shelter placement, if necessary. MRSS is dispatched to the home / location by PerformCare Behavioral Health Solutions at 877-652-7624.
