Mental Health Awareness

Event Info
Date: 
Monday, September 27, 2021 - 8:00am to 4:00pm
Description: 

Every community can expect its police officers to encounter emotionally disturbed individuals, mentally ill subjects, or persons with diminished capacities. This group of special needs individuals presents field officers with difficult and often complex issues. These types of persons, whether from intoxication, suicidal potentials, medical complications, or a diagnosed mental illness, will display a wide range of behaviors usually different from those exhibited by other members of the community or persons involved in criminal activities. This course will address current mental health issues of interest to law enforcement professionals, including behavioral signs and symptoms, common treatments and medications, and potential interactions officers may have with consumers, their families, and service providers.
