Our Mission
It is the intent of the participating Counties to provide a crisis safety net range of services for persons with developmental disabilities or related conditions.

These services are intended to meet the needs of individuals experiencing a crisis by providing and facilitating immediate and cost-effective services, which focus on preventative measures.

Our Purpose
The purpose of Metro Crisis Coordination Program (MCCP) is to work interdependently with individuals, private providers and public agencies in the Twin Cities metropolitan area to prevent crises that affect the residential and/or work (educational) placements of people with developmental disabilities or related conditions and to reduce the use of hospitalizations and civil commitments resulting from crisis situation.

MCCP promotes relationship-based crisis services that cause the least amount of disruption to the consumer. 
If preservation of the natural setting is not possible, MCCP strives to develop the best possible transition plan.

MCCP acknowledges that people experience psychiatric and behavioral crises, that they experience medical crises and that they may also experience situational crises.

Each of these types of crises requires a different response, and utilization of crisis services should be appropriate to the need/crisis.

MCCP also acknowledges that the crisis system must maximize resources and develop a continuum of options in order to support people’s unique needs.

History
Since 1996 MCCP has represented a collaborative effort among the counties of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington.

Mount Olivet Rolling Acres (MORA), MCCP's parent organization, is a private, nonprofit agency and has provided residential and other services to people with developmental disabilities for over 40 years.

MCCP's goals are:

  • To provide timely behavioral consultations and assessments

  • To operate in conjunction with existing services

  • To decrease psychiatric hospitalizations and RTC admissions resulting from behavioral crises.

Personnel
MCCP's team includes behavior analysts, social workers, psychiatric nurses and consulting psychiatrists and psychologists. Administrative support is provided by MCCP's managing entity, MORA.

Additional support and oversight are provided by a steering committee made up of developmental disability staff from the seven metro county sponsors.
