Self-Assessment Tool

Police-mental health collaboration (PMHC) programs support law enforcement agencies around the country in planning and implementing effective public safety responses to people who have mental illnesses.

The PMHC Self-Assessment tool helps law enforcement agencies and their behavioral health partners assess their progress toward implementing high quality partnership-based interventions. This tool is designed to provide resources to help improve responses to calls for service for people with mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use conditions.

The tool walks you through a series of questions to assess the status of your current response efforts. Your responses will generate a unique action plan that directs you to resources designed to help strengthen your initiatives. This tool is also set up to assist jurisdictions who may be at varying stages of implementation—from communities in the start-up stage, to those with advanced, evidence-based interventions.
