Members of the Center for Crisis Response and Behavioral Health team from William James College were selected to speak at the International Co-Responder Alliance (ICRA) 4th Annual National Co-Responder Conference in Spokane, WA from June 11-14. ICRA was established to unite, promote, strengthen, and expand co-response programs, while improving outcomes for first responders, behavioral health professionals, and individuals affected by behavioral health issues.
Dr. Sarah Abbott, Director of the Center for Crisis Response and Behavioral Health, and Sgt. Jay Ball, Framingham Police Department, Teaching Faculty, presented on Interdisciplinary Training and Education for Co-Responders. The recently launched Center for Crisis Response and Behavioral Health (CRBH) at William James College is the first-of-its kind to offer graduate education and training for law enforcement and mental health clinicians working in Co-Response programs. This presentation provided attendees with an overview of the vision, development and launch of the Center CRBH and the associated graduate certificate.
