Police Partnerships

Hegira Health's Mobile Crisis Co-Response model was developed in late 2018 to provide community based crisis intervention for individuals who come in contact with law enforcement and have behavioral health needs.

            

Mobile Crisis Teams co-respond with officers 24/7, providing crisis intervention and stabilization at the person’s home or elsewhere in the community and linking them to ongoing support to address their mental health and substance abuse needs.
