Hello Everyone! Great News! The Police Officer Standards and Training in California has come out with POST Behavioral Health Guidebook "A First Responder's Guide for Persons With Mental Illness or Developmental Disability" is a result of a three-year collaboration with Subject Matter Experts, the academic world, and non-governmental organizations. The guide is a small, spiral-bound publication that can be a quick reference when responding to a call involving a person experiencing a behavioral health crisis. The purpose of this guidebook is to enhance law enforcement's understanding and awareness of mental health disorders, substance use disorders, physical disabilities, and intellectual/developmental disabilities while adhering to the tenets of Procedural Justice. Super excited that my agency was involved in this project, and to be able to add this to my training tools. https://post.ca.gov/Portals/0/post_docs/publications/mental-health/Mental_Health.pdf
