Serving first-responders on the front line with behavioral health resources at their fingertips to help those in the community connect with resources for treatment and support.
With our fragmented and complicated behavioral health system, the purpose of our mobile app is to connect first-responders with additional resources to aid them when they encounter someone who is in a behavioral health crisis. This provides first-responders with a searchable online, up-to date resource directory by categories and cities they can refer to the individual, caregivers or family members if, they do not need immediate hospitalization. Resources can be provided for post-hospitalization as well.
First responder will be able to anonymously text or email information, and appropriate resources to individuals or family members. Connecting to appropriate resources is the key to alleviate repeat calls for trips to the ER for hospitalization because of a mental health crisis. This is a scalable tool and with additional funding we hope to reach individuals and family members in our community as well.
