A two-person Crisis Team will respond to calls of individuals in crisis or in need of social services. The team will then assess the needs of the individual and assist in resolving the situation with the least intrusive outcome. The goal of this partnership, between the Lebanon Police Department and West Central Behavioral Health, is to increase access to the appropriate support services and health care resources and improve communication between first responders and medical/mental health services.
