Congratulations and thank you for pledging to train 80% of your department’s sworn officers and other support staff in Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety and 20% in CIT or CRIT training through IACP’s “One Mind” pledge. Mental Health First Aid training can help every officer better serve their communities by giving them critical skills to respond safely and responsibly to situations involving people with mental health or substance use challenges.
If you’ve taken the pledge and you’re ready to train your officers in Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety, please email Hello@MentalHealthFirstAid.org, or call 1-888-244-8980 to get started.
Read our One Mind Pledge Campaign FAQ and download the One Mind Pledge Campaign overview flyer to learn what steps you need to take to train your department. Questions? Email us at Hello@MentalHealthFirstAid.org.
“If we can prevent today’s depressed person from becoming tomorrow’s barricaded person, then we’ve done our job on many, many levels.”
