Many law enforcement personnel do not receive adequate mental health training, which can result in ineffective and sometimes fatal outcomes. This course is designed to train first responders how to handle Point-of-Impact Crisis Intervention Situations for persons with special needs, including Long-Term EDP (Emotionally Disturbed Person with mental health issues), chemical abuser (under the influence of or suffering the aftermath of alcohol or drug abuse), or Short-Term EDP (a person in crisis now)—or sometimes all three. The course will focus on the development of a non-intrusive yet effective crisis intervention protocol that addresses the safety needs of both the first responder(s) and the person(s) in crisis.
