4C Health is proud to announce achievement of state level certification for mobile crisis through the Indiana Division of Mental Health & Addiction (DMHA). Certification reflects that 4C Health’s Mobile Crisis services are aligned with state standards.
Carrie Cadwell, CEO of 4C Health, stated, “It means so much to achieve this next benchmark in our journey to becoming a rural regional center of excellence for crisis care in Indiana. Certification allows us to take the next step in sustainability by billing state Medicaid and Healthy Indiana Plans for these services as appropriate. We could not imagine life in our communities any longer without mobile teams, without our crisis stabilization services, without psychiatric urgent. It is simply an exciting time in the evolution of behavioral health in Indiana.”
Nicole Hiatt-Drang, Chief Clinical Officer, had this to say “What a great day to be a Hoosier and what an honor it is for all individuals involved, particularly our dedicated crisis team members and the communities we serve to achieve Mobile Crisis certification. We are building a sustainable foundation for crisis care that is a game changer, a life saver for our loved ones, our neighbors, our friends and our communities.”
4C Health began providing mobile crisis services in the fall of 2020 during the public health pandemic. Since then, 4C Health mobile teams have completed over 4,000 successful mobile deployments and counting in Cass, Miami, Fulton, Pulaski, Howard, Tipon, and White counties. Mobile crisis operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
Peer Recovery Specialists are a critical component to crisis response and mobile crisis teams. 4C Health is proud as an extension of our crisis care to have established a Peer Recovery Service department, signaling our commitment to further grow, develop, and train this critical workforce for mental health and substance use care.
“This means the world to me. To be able to connect our team of peers, who bring their own experiences to help others in crisis, and connect them to care that otherwise may not have occurred is a dream come true. Their willingness to share their own experiences to help others is such an incredible blessing.” Says Beverly Garrett, Director of Crisis Services.
