The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration created a best practices toolkit for crisis care that details the necessary resources, relationships, and systems characteristic of successful crisis care services. The toolkit provides specifics on the unique challenges and benefits of developing community-specific crisis responses for first responders, bureaucratic leaders, and mental health professionals.

Creating significant roles for peers with lived experience 3. Implementing trauma-informed care 4. Committing to suicide prevention 5. Safety and security for first responders 6. Opportunities for collaboration between LE and crisis care responders What experience do you have implementing these principles?
