TRANSFORMING CRISIS RESPONSE SYSTEMS
Tuesday, June 21, 2022 (12:00 PM - 1:30 PM) (EDT)
Held on the third Tuesday of the month, we will highlight the works of CCSI and our partners, spotlighting programs in unique and intimate ways with special guests, while focusing on regional and statewide issues. CCSI has been reshaping communities and leading with compassion for the last 30 years. Our goal is to bring people together to break down the silos and build a stronger community. CCSI is proud to be the community convener, recognized as the “go-to organization” providing experts and staff to guide and educate organizations and partners in transforming and reshaping their practice!
This presentation will discuss work that CCSI’s Institute for Police, Mental Health & Community Collaboration is doing in conjunction with the NYS Office of Mental Health to transform crisis response systems to be less reliant on police officers as first responders to individuals in emotional distress. We’ll also discuss complementary efforts that ensures law enforcement officers are prepared when they are the first responders. In addition to describing the state-wide Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program, we will highlight the innovative Mobile Access Program (MAP) that equips police and mental health clinicians with iPads to enable rapid and remote evaluations of distressed individuals. A summary of the positive outcomes of the program will be shared.
