Non-Law Enforcement Responses to People Experiencing a Mental Health Crisis

Thursday, September 23, 2021 | 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

A Data-Driven Justice Initiative Webinar

Counties and cities across the country are looking for innovative ways to respond to 911 calls for service involving people experiencing a mental health crisis. Local leaders are exploring potential non-law enforcement responses through mobile crisis teams or other types of partnerships. This webinar will feature localities that have created such programs, their lessons learned and resulting best practices.

Immediately following the webinar, attendees are invited to attend virtual breakout sessions of the DDJ peer engagement groups: Criminal Justice, Behavioral Health and Social Services and Planning and Research.
