988 is Coming: How to Align Efforts and Leverage America’s New Hotline to Prevent Overdose
July 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
On July 16, a new national hotline will be in place to help respond to mental health emergencies. Rather than calling 911, people can dial 988 to connect directly to a crisis counselor. But are we prepared? In California, efforts are being made to strengthen regional dispatching units who will answer and respond, and communities are having conversations about activating direct responses including mobile mental health units. This webinar will focus on identifying opportunities to align your work with the implementation of 988, and how to educate your community as an outreach strategy for overdose prevention.
