Mobile Assessment and Response Program (MARP) provides direct and support services to children 6 to 18 years old and their families in Washoe County who are experiencing mental health issues and/or difficulties with violent behavior in the classroom.

MARP provides early identification, assessment, and treatment planning with a team of specialists. The program seeks to reduce the number of youth entering the Juvenile Justice System and to reduce the number of school-days missed due to the child’s behavioral problems.
