This team will collaborate with Durham’s Crisis Intervention Team, a group of law enforcement, fire, and EMS personnel who are specially trained to interact with citizens in mental health crisis. We will analyze data from the Durham County Jail to track repeat arrests by persons with or without mental illness, along with their use of mental health and other services in the Duke Health System. By the end of the summer, we will report findings and recommendations to the Crisis Intervention Team and Durham’s Stepping Up Initiative.
