(This amendment provides $16.3 million from the general fund each year to establish five children's mental health crisis response projects, one in each health district. Each project will include a mobile crisis team and crisis stabilization unit. Mobile crisis teams are comprised of clinical and case management staff, including a child psychiatrist, that can assess, triage, and provide treatment services for a child in different settings such as home, school, after-school programs, detention centers or other community location. A crisis stabilization unit is a short-term, residential option available to children who have been assessed by the mobile crisis team and determined to need more comprehensive services.)
