Webinar: Interacting With First Responders
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Based on recent data, an estimated 6-10% of police contacts involve those with a known serious mental illness. In 1988, the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training was developed in hopes of reducing arrests of people with mental illness and increasing the likelihood of them receiving appropriate mental health services. During this webinar, Master Sargeant Corey Nooner, 9-1-1 Dispatcher Charlotte Anderson, and Kathy Day, Caregiver, Mental Health Advocate, and Section Advisor for the PsychU Patient and Caregiver section will discuss the CIT model and other considerations when encountering first responders during a mental health crisis.
