Responding to Individuals in Behavioral Health Crisis via Co-Responder Models: The Roles of Cities, Counties, Law Enforcement, and Providers

This webinar will provide an overview of a new resource from Policy Research, Inc., and the National League of Cities concerning the co-responder model.

The co-responder model has emerged as a promising and increasingly adopted practice for cities and counties seeking to improve outcomes for individuals experiencing behavioral health crises. While varied in practice, the model provides law enforcement with appropriate alternatives to arrest as they respond to individuals in crisis. This new resource brief details multiple co-responder models available to city and county leaders. It also provides information on the benefits of co-responder models; how to move forward with planning, funding, and implementation; and evaluation. The webinar will also feature local representatives from two John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge sites, who will speak about their experiences with the model.

This webinar will be hosted by Policy Research, Inc., and the National League of Cities, in support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge.
