Mobile Crisis Unit available for Oakland County adults

Common Ground’s mobile crisis unit (Oakland Crisis Intervention and Recovery Team – OCIRT)  serves adults in Oakland County by intervening in the face of a crisis to deescalate and provide support. OCIRT is composed of Clinicians and Certified Peer Support Specialist who provide short-term, face-to-face crisis intervention and connection to resources based on the needs of the person in crisis. OCIRT is able to meet with anyone in Oakland County at their location: home, hospitals, schools, etc. 

OCIRT’s ability to meet people in the community is part of the continuum of care for someone who is struggling with a mental illness, emotional battle, or substance use disorder. Given that OCIRT is a voluntary program composed of a skilled team, it can be a positive alternative in place of police involvement, inpatient hospitalizations, or waiting to be connected to a provider. OCIRT is a 24/7, immediate resource that strives to make contact with anyone in Oakland County in less than an hour.

As of December 2023, 95% of OCIRT interventions have accomplished the de-escalation of mental, emotional, and substance use crises without further inpatient or invasive intervention.

If you or anyone you know is in need of mobile crisis services, call 800-231-1127.

    • Hello Katie,

      Currently our mobile teams only support Oakland and Genesee counties. You may want to contact Macomb County’s government site, or call our 800-231-1127 Resource and Crisis number to see if they have knowledge of a mobile service in Macomb.

      Thank you for reaching out. I hope that you can find the assistance that you need. Let me know if I can help with anything else.


  1. I used the mobile crises line and it was very helpful for me. They sat and talked with me about my options. They want to help you stay safe in whichever environment makes you feel the safest. For me it was staying home. They sat with me while I took my medication to help me calm down and when they saw I was ok, they left but reminded me I could call again if needed.
