Is your organization looking to initiate or improve your mobile crisis response or just want to learn more? Join us on Wednesday, September 20th from 2 to 3:30pm for Bringing Help to You: Innovative Models in Mobile Crisis Response.
Mobile crisis services provide a rapid, on-site response to resolve crisis situations involving those with mental health or addiction concerns. These specially-trained teams are a critical link between the community and emergency departments and have reduced psychiatric hospitalizations. They also play a role in police interactions, reducing the number of arrests in moments of crisis.
During this webinar, hear from three innovators in the field of mobile crisis response as they highlight different mobile response models and community partnerships. They will also provide guidance on how to establish, support and expand a mobile response unit.
Do not miss this opportunity to understand how your organization can utilize mobile crisis response to increase access to and the quality of crisis care.

Overview: Stress takes life and gives life. It is an inescapable part of our existence. Managing stress effectively and efficiently is the key to successful living. Rather than letting stress shut us down and insidiously ravage our bodies, we need to embrace it as an opportunity to deepen self-awareness, form richer relationships, and find spiritual vitality. Learning to befriend stress changes our relationship to it and empowers us to use stress as a catalyst for positive change in all areas of life.
