Police at Mental Health Crises: Help or Hindrance?

These two episodes cover a panel discussion titled "Police Presence During a Mental Health Crisis: Help or Hindrance?" featuring Meg Kaveny, LCSW of Project Respond, Brenton Gicker, EMT, RN of CAHOOTS, Juliana Wallace, LCSW of Unity Center, and moderator Karen James of KBOO Radio. It was taped at the June 16, 2017 Oregon Law Mental Health Conference in Portland, Oregon. As suggested by the title, the panelists discuss ways to humanely assist those in mental health crisis through the lens of mental health professionals who sometimes partner with police agencies. Overall the conference included twelve interactive sessions featuring legal, clinical and experiential experts. This show was taped and edited by Mike Brown with help from PC Peri, Dan Handelman and Barb Greene.

Streaming made possible by Mental Health Association of Portland.
