How CCBHCs Can Leverage Co-Response to Streamline 988 Adoption

Beginning July 16, 2022, the 988 crisis hotline will be fully operational, reflecting a commitment to expanding access to crisis intervention services to all Americans. CCHBCs are uniquely positioned to serve as a key driver in 988’s success. Their standardized crisis and mobile response capabilities can decrease the burden on healthcare staff and systems, law enforcement officials, and 911 operators. How can CCBHCs partner with local crisis response systems to streamline 988 adoption in their communities? Join us to hear how one CCBHC, Network180, has implemented co-response in their community. You’ll also hear the National Council and Relias share how 988 can improve crisis response across the continuum of care. By attending the webinar, you’ll be able to:

o Understand the focus on 988 and crisis systems
o Understand the need for justice partnerships
o Describe at least two different models for co-response between behavioral health and emergency services being used in Kent County, MI
o Name two lessons learned from early co-response implementation
