FAST mobile mental health crisis services are being provided 24/7 for families with children age 0 through 20 in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Wexford and Missaukee Counties, thanks to grants from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund and the State of Michigan. FAST is coming in February to Crawford and Roscommon. FAST offers children and families an opportunity to de-escalate a situation or problem in the least restrictive setting, while also developing strategies to address any future safety concerns. “Mobile” means the team comes to you where the crisis is occurring. Mobile mental health services are short-term, on the phone, or face-to-face services intended to restore a child’s and/or family’s functioning level to where it was before the crisis and to avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency department or police involvement. MI 12

An individual is expressing thoughts of suicide.

An individual is experiencing severe stress that is resulting in a significant decline in daily and/or family functioning.

You just don’t know what else to do.


FAST is operated by Northern Lakes Community Mental Health Authority and a growing list of community partners, including Munson Medical Center, Child and Family Services of Northwest Michigan / Third Level Crisis Intervention Service, local Departments of Health and Human Services, and local law enforcement, all working together.
