Law enforcement agencies have used police-mental health collaboration (PMHC) programs to help officers safely and effectively respond to calls for service involving people with mental illnesses for decades. This webinar will provide an overview of PMHC programs—collaborative partnerships among law enforcement agencies, mental health providers, and other community-based entities—and will feature two Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program (JMHCP) grantees whose programs effectively respond to people with mental illnesses.
This webinar is designed to help members of law enforcement understand and recognize the effects an officer-involved shooting may have on them. This webinar will provide information on who is impacted and will describe the symptoms associated with potential stress responses.
Presenter: Nancy Bohl-Penrod, Ph.D., Director, The Counseling Team International
