What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: Crisis Intervention Team

Mental Health in the county where I work has done some innovative things for mental health/ police officer cooperation.  One of those things is the mental health department provides training for police officers who want to become certified as Crisis Intervention Team officers.  At this time there is not an active mobile mental health team for adults, and consequently the police are called upon to do mental health interventions.  However the crisis intervention team officers are provider an intensive training to help them with mental health consumers.  This started with San Jose Police Department, but has now spread to all of the police department through out the county.
