Strategies for Planning and Implementing a Comprehensive Crisis System
Description: Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center; the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance; and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing
In collaboration with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, this webinar will provide an in-depth overview of planning and implementation for a comprehensive crisis response system based on the Roadmap to an Ideal Crisis System Guide. The presentation will discuss common challenges providers and policymakers face trying to fill this need as well as unique challenges based on type of community (rural, suburban, urban). It will also address how incorporating Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) can help achieve their long-term goals for crisis care. The webinar will feature a representative from a Justice and Mental Health Collaboration program grant site who will share their experiences and efforts with building a comprehensive crisis system using the Roadmap to an Ideal Crisis System Guide. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask the panelists’ questions.
