Crisis Systems Response Training and Technical Assistance
The Crisis Systems Response Training and Technical Assistance Center (CSR-TTAC) provides support to states, territories, tribal organizations, and community partners across the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline network and behavioral health crisis continuum of care. The goal of the CSR-TTAC is to support a crisis care system that is integrated, sustainable, equitable, and aligned around evidence-based and evidenced-informed practices.
The CSR-TTAC will be:
- Assisting in the integration of the 988 Lifeline with 911 and mobile crisis response services;
- Working to increase access to mental health and substance use crisis services for people and families in need, particularly priority populations and those who have been traditionally underserved by the health care system;
- Convening experts and leaders in mental health and substance use crisis systems and services to identify emerging best and promising practices; and
- Developing and disseminating materials for policymakers, agency leadership, the crisis workforce, and people and families in need to help improve crisis systems and services nationwide.
Time: 1 p.m. ET
This webinar is a first in a series to create a defined space where the discussions happening around the country on how to bring 988 and 911 systems together can be housed, addressing the most common concerns and questions that colleagues in this field are regularly asking independent of each other.
