Mental Health Adult Pre-Charge Diversion Program Webinar

 

 

Presentation by Constable Scott Logan and Yolanda Diston, RN, of the Mobile Crisis Intervention Team of the Durham Regional Police Service on Thursday, March 26th.

When a person with mental health issues has committed a minor crime in Durham Region, the Adult Mental Health Pre-charge Diversion Program helps move them away from the justice system and into the healthcare system. This webinar will explain how the program has reduced the number of individuals experiencing mental health challenges who are charged with offences while helping them to take responsibility for their actions and linking them with the care they need.
