This course provides the key concepts, safety techniques and communication skills for peace officers to use when they respond to individuals in a serious mental health crisis. It covers the legal aspects of mental health commitments, liability issues, mental disorders, and mental disabilities. In addition, it deals with a variety of developmental disabilities including epilepsy, cerebral palsy and hearing impairments. Other areas covered include:

  • indicators of mental illness
  • understanding mental illness
  • documenting the interpersonal relations necessary to effectively work with the mentally ill, their families, and the mental health system
