I'm very surprised that Mobile Crisis Management was not listed in the July 11 Wellness article, "Lifesavers.” MCM will provide on-site crisis management to prevent hospitalization or out-of home placement for children and adults in crisis. MCM provides 24/7 on-call, telephone and/or face-to-face crisis support, every day of the year. MCM involves all support services and treatments necessary to provide integrated crisis response, stabilization and prevention activities. There is no cost to the caller for the service.
MCM serves Buncombe, Henderson, Madison, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Transylvania and Yancey counties. Mobile Crisis Management can be contacted at 888-573-1006.

Editor’s response: Thank you for pointing out the service this organization provides. We focused on suicide prevention in “Lifesavers,” but regret omitting the Mobile Crisis Center.
