The Expanded Mobile Crisis Outreach Team (EMCOT) works with the City of Austin first responders to divert jail bookings and emergency department (ED) admissions by providing real-time co-response for mental health crisis emergency calls as well as mental health training for first responders. They provide short-term community-based interventions to stabilize a person in a psychiatric crisis and connect them with Integral Care services or other appropriate care. EMCOT is also onsite at Central Booking and at the Travis County Correctional Complex to provide support upon an individual’s release.
