Collaborating in the Field: Doubling Down on Education About the Co-Response Model

Abbott, PhD, Director of the Center for Crisis Response and Behavioral Health, has spent the majority of her career at the intersection of individuals experiencing a mental health crisis and the community at large.

While there, she witnessed first-hand the challenges associated when police responded to calls—which didn’t always go well.
