Recognizing policing has to change, alternative means of responding to people in crisis is a step forward, if free of the force common to traditional mental health services. But police are still going to be involved with people in crisis if other options are unavailable, or if there is a weapon or other situation that no mental health service will attend. How do we monitor police services and create accountability to the community? What external pressure can be brought to bear to influence police reform, such as inquests, and how can we advance our position to create good outcomes? This workshop will offer a framework for change.
The video recording of this webinar will be made available on NARPA's YouTube channel.
