Decriminalizing Disability

When police are called to respond to individuals experiencing a behavioral health crisis, the situation too often escalates and can produce tragic results. Police training will only go so far – when possible, mental health workers and peers skilled at engaging individuals in crisis and de-escalating situations must instead be deployed.
DRM is advocating for a comprehensive crisis response system as an alternative to incarceration.
