    A significant number of people with mental illness are jailed every year, often for minor and non-violent incidents.  One solution to this issue is the use of co-responder programs where behavioral health clinicians, working in partnership with law enforcement officers, respond to 911 calls involving individuals experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis.

    In this webinar attendees will learn:

    • The national scope of the problem that is the focus of these co-responder programs
    • The usual design and implementation stages for co-responder programs, including
      • Engaging community partners and other stakeholders
      • Approaches to funding
      • Key factors in program evaluation
    • Key examples of co-responder programs and the results achieved
    • Emerging and innovative approaches in use to reimagine co-response
