SAMHSA Pre-Application Webinar for Community Crisis Response Partnerships

June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health
Services(CMHS), is announcing a webinar for prospective applicants interested in applying for fiscal year
2022 Cooperative Agreements for Innovative Community Crisis Response Partnerships program (Short
Title: Community Crisis Response Partnerships).

The purpose of this program is to create or enhance existing mobile crisis response teams to divert
adults, children, and youth experiencing mental health crises from law enforcement in high need
community(ies). This program recognizes a high-need community as a community where mobile crisis
services are absent or inconsistent, where most mental health crises are responded to by first
responders, and/or where first responders are not adequately trained or equipped to diffuse mental
health crises. Award recipients will be expected to utilize SAMHSA’s National Guidelines for Behavioral
Health Crisis Care: Best Practice Toolkit as a guide for best practices in the delivery of mobile crisis
services.

Note: Registration is not required.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The NOFO and the Best Practice Toolkit are available on the SAMHSA
website at:
