Regional Response Unit
The Regional Response Unit (RRU) is an outreach component of
the Childrens Crisis
Intervention Unit (CCIS) at UMDNJ/UBHC Acute Services. The program
services Middlesex, Mercer, Somerset and Hunterdon counties. This

and residential facillities.
Children and adolescents who are seriously emotionally disturbed
and/or experiencing a mental health crisis can be referred for
RRU services through a number of sources: designated staff at
facilities, screening center staff and mental health professionals.
