Please join us for a powerful conversational process for fostering constructive dialogue, accessing collective intelligence and creating innovative possibilities for action to stop further tragedy and hurt, and empower our community. Our focus is Mental Health Crisis Response in the Twin Cities Native Community. Learn about how crisis intervention teams currently perform in mental health crisis prevention/intervention and wellness recovery. Discuss the importance of authentic dialogue between mental health, police and community advocates and the future direction of an effective CIT in the American Indian Community.
