The purpose of this research project was to explore the relationship between the frequency of service utilization of the Community-based Mobile Crisis Response Services (MCR) provided by the Southwestern Mental Health Center (SWMHC) and the frequency of service utilization of emergency holds and civil commitments in Jackson and Cottonwood counties by month for the 2009 calendar year.
The specific research question proposed was: Is there a relationship between the frequency of Community-Based Mobile Crisis Response Services and the frequency of emergency holds and civil commitments in Jackson and Cottonwood Counties?
The significance of this research project was to explore statistically significant relationships and service utilization of MCR in rural southwestern, Minnesota. There is a large gap in research available to note MCR’s usage in geographically rural areas as well as MCR’s relationship to local emergency holds and civil commitments.
