Join us for a 60-minute webinar on Youth Mobile Response Services – a 24-hour service that supports young people undergoing mental health and social crises. During this discussion, we will evaluate the role of law enforcement and mental health systems in the United States and their relationships to racial justice – recognizing that for over a century, these systems have caused more harm than good. 

Additionally, participants will learn how Youth Mobile Response Services do not need law enforcement to respond to mental health and social crises. We will provide federal, state, and local entities with principles for implementation, funding options, and federal recommendations to bolster equitable and effective Mobile Response Services across the country.

This conversation will be led by youth, practitioners, and experts in the field:

  • Dr. Jeana R. BraceyAssociate Vice President of School and Community Initiatives, Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut, Inc. 
  • Geneva StrechE-Team, University of Oklahoma Outreach
  • Smitha Gundavajhala, Student, University of Washington School of Law; Changemaker, New Deal for Youth 
  • Whitney BuntsPolicy Analyst, Center for Law and Social Policy
