Expanding First Response Assessment Tool Launch

Past Event
November 16, 2022, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm , Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and Alkermes Inspiration 

Jurisdictions across the country are reimagining their approach to public safety by investing in community responder programs that position health professionals and staff trained in crisis response as first responders to handle behavioral health (i.e., mental health, substance use, and overdose) crises and social disturbances. 

Join the CSG Justice Center for a live webinar to launch the Expanding First Response Assessment Tool, an online, interactive tool that will allow the CSG Justice Center to provide tailored, step-by-step guidance for communities to plan and implement a new community responder program. 

Speakers: 

  • Anne Larsen, Program Manager, Behavioral Health, CSG Justice Center 
  • Ashtan Towles, Senior Project Analyst, Behavioral Health, CSG Justice Center
