To monitor the planned expanded mental health services and the creation of a behavioral health crisis center, we are meeting with a series of agency representatives who can give us relevant updates.
This month the discussion will focus on the intersections between the proposed Behavioral Health Campus (aka Crisis Center), the homeless, and those the Lawrence Police Department encounter each day. We will be meeting with Pam Weigand (Community Corrections), Thea Perry (Lawrence - Douglas County Homeless Shelter Board President), and hopefully, an Lawrence Police officer coordinating the Crisis Intervention Training (CIT).
The rough agenda will include:
- 9 - 9:30: Mental Health Committee business
- 9:30 - 10:30: Discussion with Mental Health/Law Enforcement/Homeless leaders
- 10:30 - 11: Mental Health Committee business
All Justice Matters and interested members of the public are invited. Please RSVP.
