Community Response and Engagement

Our mental health professionals provide services that offer a comprehensive mobile response in the community:

Community Intervention Program

We provide outreach to disparate populations that have been historically underserved by mental health services in an effort to engage people from these populations into appropriate mental health services.

Mobile Support Team

We provide field-based support to requesting law enforcement officers responding to a behavioral health crisis.

Training for Law Enforcement

A key approach for crisis response is to develop strategies to train community members to recognize signs and symptoms of mental illness and how to effectively intervene when a crisis occurs.
