"It is rewarding to work with dedicated, talented, and supportive individuals who exhibited a drive to learn new things. I have the privilege of watching families learn and grow as a result of their exposure to Seneca." -Seneca Therapist




The Mobile Response Team is a team of crisis response staff who provide community-based support to youth experiencing mental health crises. Seneca believes that crisis response programs are a vital service for youth and families and should exist within a spectrum of services designed to allow youth to remain in their homes and communities. The service is intended to offer families, schools, and providers an alternative to calling 911 when law enforcement may not be necessary for the level of presenting concerns.
