Policing Mental Illness Crisis


A great short documentary on police treatment of people in mental health crisis.

A look at the formation of a Crisis Intervention Team and the special training given to police officers who wear plain clothes and apply mental health first aid. Includes an interview with a person with a diagnosis, and family members, on what it’s like to be involved in mental health crisis involving police.

A hopeful look at best practices and good results in crisis intervention.
