Training for Police-Mental Health Collaboration Programs: Peers and Families in Training

During CIT and other training about mental illness, law enforcement officers hear stories from people who have personally experienced a mental health crisis and their family members. Stories often include details about barriers to accessing treatment and services, interactions with law enforcement, and feelings about the stigma of mental illness. This peer and family perspectives panel is an opportunity for officers to gain a deeper understanding of mental illness and the experience of responding to and interacting with a person living with a serious mental illness who is in crisis.
