Watch: Working with First Responders – What Families Should Know
November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Watch the recording for the “Working with First Responders – What Families Should Know” workshop.
It is a call no family wants to have to make. Yet many families must access emergency services via first responders when there is a mental health and/or medical crisis. There may not be a mental health professional available to respond and/or there may be a co-occurring medical or safety issue. When this level of intervention must happen, what should families know, and how can they prepare their child and first responders for this type of encounter? In this workshop our three panelists provide information about training for law enforcement and EMTs in Vermont as well as offer practical tips for families about what to expect and how to prepare for this response.
