They go to the person in crisis, wherever it might be: home, church, senior center, etc. They can be called out by the police, the person in crisis, a family member, a friend, or a therapist. The crisis could be that someone has decided to kill themselves or that there 9 year old child is out of control or that their elderly mother-in-law is having behaviors as her dementia increases.

They have trained, clinical staff that help get the crisis under control and make sure the person has the resources or services they need to help them through the crisis. So far, their youngest client has been 4 and their oldest has been 96, and everyone in between.
