Crisis Response

To reduce overreliance on police officers—particularly as first responders to people in behavioral health crisis—many communities are expanding their crisis response options. These responses are best implemented as part of a larger comprehensive, coordinated system, informed by community crisis data, and led by a diverse group of community stakeholders. Our team works with jurisdictions across the country that are serving as laboratories for innovation to ensure that behavioral health crises receive the appropriate response.
