Redefining the culture of mental health emergency response requires accurate risk assessments, “least restrictive” responses, and person-centered interventions. This panel explores system transformation that assesses self-harm and violence risks, recognizes the value of those with lived experience at the point of call, and increases trust and confidence in emergency responders. Join this session to learn how the right emergency response can improve community resilience.
