    Communities across the nation are developing and adopting a variety of alternative crisis response models, including co-responder, community-led response, multi-disciplinary response teams, among numerous other iterations.  For far too long the debate has been if these responses should be either law enforcement based or civilian only teams. However, communities that adopt a civilian-only response team must also incorporate additional strategies to address the significant number of mental health related calls for service that remain; and presumably would necessitate a traditional law enforcement-only response to provide an equitable mental health emergency response to people with symptoms which present with a public safety risk. Not doing so may contribute to over-policing mental health calls for service.  The solution to equitable mental health emergency alternative response is not an “or” solution, rather it is an “and” solution.  This session will focus on the Ecosystem of AND.
