The NC DHHS Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services is contracting with the UNCG CYFCP to provide the infrastructure management and evaluation support necessary for the successful implementation of the Mobile Outreach Response Engagement and Stabilization Pilot (MORES Pilot). This pilot program will begin with five sites across North Carolina that will implement an enhanced mobile crisis unit model that includes family peer support, decreased response times, and added follow-up support for children, youth, young adults, and their families.

In 2023 and 2024, the CYFCP also is partnering with NC DHHS through this contract to implement the “Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions for Providers: Verbal De-Escalation” initiative. This initiative provides crisis intervention training to mental health providers who serve children and youth across North Carolina.
