Law Enforcement-Mental Health Learning Sites

These 14 learning sites are agencies across the country that have excelled in working with their behavioral health partners to improve outcomes for people with mental health needs, co-occurring substance use needs, and experiencing homelessness. Each learning site brings a wealth of expertise in using technology to connect officers with clinicians when they are on the scene with a person in crisis, implementing rapid mobile crisis responses, providing mental health training for officers, and more.

Four court-based sites were selected by the CSG Justice Center and BJA to share their expertise with other criminal justice and mental health agencies and organizations. Mental health courts are court-based programs that bring together members of criminal justice and behavioral health systems, among others, to work with people with mental health conditions who face criminal charges.
