SERVICES:

Children's Mobile Intensive Crisis Stabilization (C-MICS) are services to assist children in immediate crisis to work toward recovery in the least restrictive setting through the use of short-term interventions.

  1. C-MICS is provided to anyone under age 21 with SED, I/DD, SUD diagnosis, in Lapeer County identified as needing mobile crisis services through the PIHP Access Line 888-225-4447 or by walk-in at Lapeer CMH building.
  2. Services are available Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, Sunday and Holidays 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  3. C-MICS is provided by a team of master’s level clinicians and parent support partners 

The goal of C-MICS is to provide immediate evaluations and interventions for children in crisis (at risk for hospitalization). Staff will work with families to use support systems in place whenever possible. C-MICS support will help provide an alternative to hospitalization for serious mental health conditions, that may stabilize within a short period of time. C-MICS staff will link with LCCMH direct, ongoing services. If a child does not receive services at LCCMH, staff will provide assistance in linking families to services.
