Preventing Tragedies With Police
From treatment to training, there are many ways to help
According to a recent USA Today article, more police departments and policy makers are developing de-escalation trainings for law enforcement so they can better help individuals who may be suffering from a mental health crisis.
But training isn't the only solution: more effective services are also needed for individuals with criminal justice involvement. This month, we want to share with you the steps we're taking at several Telecare programs to better serve justice-involved clients.
Let us know if you would like more information.
All the best, Faith Richie, SVP of Development, Telecare
