Join Congressman Adam Smith and other local experts for a panel discussion on mobile crisis response programs. These programs partner first responders with mental health professionals to better respond to community members who are experiencing a mental health crisis. Mobile crisis response programs enhance public safety, deliver better outcomes for community members, and reduce strain on the resources first responders expend on responding to these calls.
When: Wednesday, August 30, 6:00 - 7:00 PM PT
Congressman Smith will be joined by:
- Michelle McDaniel, CEO of Crisis Connections
- Jon Ehrenfeld, Mobile Integrated Health Program Manager at Seattle Fire Department
- David Fagerholm, Senior Clinic Manager at Sound Mental Health

Earlier this year, Congressman Smith and his colleague, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) introduced the 911 Community Crisis Responders Act, which would create a grant program for states, tribes, and localities to create and expand mobile crisis response programs. Learn more here.
