We are currently developing a one-day, evidence-based, mental illness and crisis training for law enforcement professionals (The R-Model: Research, Respond, Refer). We are partnering with the Minnetonka Police Department.
Our state of the art program introduces new concepts and protocols, including how to quickly recognize the signs of a crisis, evidence-based crisis management strategies, connections with community resources, and agency-specific initiatives. This model includes trauma-informed care, cultural competency, and officer mental health.
Prior to administering the training, we can conduct stakeholder interviews, analyze crime data, and assess community needs and resources. The one-day training model is tailored for specific agencies and delivered in-house.
The training meets the new Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) in-service learning objectives for Crisis Intervention, Mental Illness, and Conflict Management and Mediation.
The impact of this new training will be published and available April 2018.
If you are interested in bringing the R-Model to your agency, please contact us.
