rewrite this title Linn County will launch mobile mental health services

Linn County is introducing a new mobile mental health care clinic that will serve residents in crisis situations. The Mobile Crisis Intervention Team will be able to travel throughout the county to provide assistance to those in need. Instead of meeting residents in emergency rooms, workers will now have a modified van equipped with a workspace and onboard generator for increased flexibility.

Todd Noble, the county’s health administrator, emphasizes the importance of accessible mental health care and discusses the impact of a statewide mental health crisis on the region. The introduction of the mobile clinic aims to address the growing need for mental health services in Linn County.
