TMH Partnership with Apalachee Center

Live Oak, LLC is a joint venture between Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) and Apalachee Center. As a joint venture between two provider organizations, it does not bill for clinical services, nor does it have separate staff.

Live Oak utilizes the resources of Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare and Apalachee Center to analyze trends, provide service leadership and drive integrated strategic planning for behavioral health in both agencies, and across the region.

Mobile Response Team (MRT)

The Apalachee Center offers a helpful resource for anyone experiencing a mental health crisis or are in urgent need of mental health treatment. The Mobile Response Team (MRT) is a 24/7 on-call crisis intervention service.

MRT provides an emergency behavioral health assessment and diversion as alternatives to inpatient treatment when appropriate. Apalachee Center’s MRT currently serves all eight counties in our treatment area including: Leon, Liberty, Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla Counties.

Services may be accessed 24/7 through the MRT’s toll-free number: (800) 342-0774. Services are provided through phone consultations and on-site response by MRT clinicians.

The Apalachee MRT provides care in a community-based setting and increases opportunities to stabilize individuals in the least restrictive setting and avoid possible jail, hospital or emergency room utilization.

Beyond working to resolve the crisis situation, the team also works with the individual and their family to identify and create strategies for effectively dealing with possible future crisis and rapid follow-up after the initial contact.
