Continued Efforts for Alternate Crisis Response Program in Raleigh to Enhance Mental Health Services

Raleigh Takes a Step Towards Improving Crisis Response with Alternate Program

Raleigh is making progress in the creation of an Alternate Crisis Response Program, which aims to improve the overall response to crises in the community. The city has been conducting listening sessions and gathering feedback for several months to develop this program. The team that will be involved in the program includes social workers, peer support specialists, EMS personnel, and police officers who will work together to respond to specific 911 calls. Their focus will be on providing de-escalation techniques and immediate assistance in emergency situations.

One advocate for mental health patients, Dorine Martin, supports the creation of this program. With decades of experience in the field, she believes that increasing services and reducing the stigma around mental health care will help communities become healthier. Martin eagerly awaits the April update to the city council regarding the program’s progress.

The goal of the Alternate Crisis Response Program is to provide specialized care and support to those experiencing mental health crises. By implementing this program, Raleigh aims to create a more effective and compassionate response to emergency situations involving mental health crises.
