Why CAHOOTS-style Mobile Crisis Intervention Services?
We as a society have placed an enormous burden on police and fire/EMS services to solve crises deriving from mental health, substance use, and homelessness. While there are a broad range of services and ways to address these issues at their root, mobile crisis using a crisis worker and EMT is the most innovative first response model for responding to these types of crises. Not only does it provide a safe, effective way to respond to human need, it alleviates this burden we have saddled on our first responders. It is truly a win-win.
