Access the CSG Justice Center’s Report on How States Can Support Local Crisis Systems

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, recently released the report “A Matter of Public Health and Safety: How States Can Support Local Crisis Systems.” The report discusses five actions state policymakers can take to fund and sustain local crisis systems, which relieve the burden on law enforcement, hospitals, and jails while providing individuals with much-needed resources to address and prevent mental health crises. The report also outlines two case studies in Texas and Arkansas to show the effectiveness of supporting local crisis systems.
