This course is mandated training for ALL police officers!!
 
Law enforcement officers have an important role to play in their interactions with community members. This means responding to incidents with individuals who have mental health issues, including diagnosed mental illness. This 8-hour course is meant to provide law enforcement officers with an awareness of mental health issues including a history of the mental health system, types of mental illness, signs and symptoms, common treatments and medications, and the potential interactions law enforcement may have on a regular basis with these individuals, their families, and service providers.
