Power in Collaboration: Co-Responder Program Partners with Roeland Park Police Department

The main goal of Johnson County Mental Health Center’s Co-Responder Program is to “provide the right intervention at the right time by the right person.”

The program deploys a mental health professional on law enforcement calls for service involving people with mental illnesses.

The co-responders, all licensed clinicians, provide immediate assistance to the police department during and following emergency calls, such as connecting individuals with appropriate resources and reducing unnecessary arrests or emergency room visits.
