Behavioral health crises can lead to contact with law enforcement, arrest, injury, or other harmful responses. The Wilson Center seeks to evaluate new models of crisis response with an eye toward reducing involvement of law enforcement while assuring public safety. This includes evaluating police response towards behavioral health crises, peer support models, and policies around involuntary commitment.
