According to a 2023 report by Mental Health America, 21% of adults in the United States are experiencing mental illness. Of those, 28% were unable to receive treatment. These statistics underscore the importance of providing law enforcement officers with crisis intervention training to ensure safe and effective response to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. Without this training, encounters between individuals in crisis and law enforcement can quickly escalate, leading to potential harm to both the individuals and officers involved.

In this special webinar presentation, Dr. Kimberly Butler from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office (NY) and Blue Line Wellness will discuss the essential components of effective crisis intervention training and processes.

You’ll learn:

  • What effective crisis intervention training looks like
  • Why officers and agencies benefit from crisis intervention training
  • What topics and courses should be included to ensure effective crisis intervention training
  • Additional strategies agencies can implement to improve response to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis
