Conference Agenda

Reimagining County Behavioral Health Crisis Response Systems and Policies

Mar. 4, 2019 , 10:45 am – 11:45 am
Lincoln East, Concourse Level

Without alternatives to jails and emergency rooms, law enforcement and other first responders have few options for diverting people who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis. NACo is partnering with Arnold Ventures to improve America's crisis response system through the Data-Driven Justice project. This workshop presents engagement strategies counties are using to build regional and state support to redesign crisis response systems and link people with mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders to places where they are most likely to receive effective treatment.

  • Reimagining County Behavioral Health Crisis Response Systems and Policies is a part of NACo Legislative Conference.
