SAMHSA: Early Diversion Part 4: Collaborative Relationships with Law Enforcement that Survive Changing Times

Jun 17 2021

Access to treatment services, staffing, and service models have been altered due to the pandemic. Law enforcement practices have also been altered, in particular training initiatives and reductions in arrests. However, the treatment, service, and support needs of individuals with behavioral health disorders encountered by law enforcement must still be addressed. In this webinar, presenters will describe how community partnerships with law enforcement, such as Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs, have adapted to address the needs of individuals in crisis or in contact with law enforcement. Guidelines will be introduced for communities to consider in order to adapt and grow these relationships.
