It provides assertive outreach, treatment and support to adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) and children with Severe Emotional Disturbances (SED) who resist more traditional forms of outpatient treatment. Service provision is mobile and provided in the individual's natural environment (i.e., home, street, shelters for the homeless, etc.).
 
QCI Behavioral Health (QCI)  is dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals who are challenged by mental illness and low income, especially those individuals who are traditionally considered the most difficult to serve. Our interdisciplinary team provides clinic and community-based services including psychiatry, psychotherapy, case management, and psychiatric and vocational rehabilitation.

MTS Model
Mobile Treatment Services is a team treatment approach designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and support to persons with serious and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia.

Treatment Approach and Methodology
  • maximize access to services;
  • motivate consumers to seek and continue treatment;
  • minimize resistance and denial;
  • confront dependency and helplessness;
  • provide a framework for prevention and health maintenance;
  • operate in the context of the “real world”; and
  • assure comprehensiveness in addressing the whole person within treatment.
