Mental Health Engagement and Response Team(MHEART) – Why Crisis Response should be Multi-Sectoral and Flexible – 2019-11-04

After years of program reorganization, and re-deployment of resources to meet the needs of individuals in mental health crisis; and coinciding with the creation of the Northumberland County Situation Table, the MHEART program was created. This workshop will share the lived experiences of clients and team members in the development of this innovative and collaborative crisis response program designed to meet the needs of an urban and rural mental health population.
