Understanding & Serving Together
Every day, thousands of professionals in communities around the nation have the opportunity to interact with and positively impact the lives of people suffering with mental illness and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Public safety and law enforcement officers are often the first responders to arrive in crisis situations. Unfortunately, they have often not received the specialized training required to understand these individuals and de-escalate a potentially difficult situation.
In the spirit of “serving together” and helping everyone who serves in our communities, Relias Learning is partnering with The National Council, ANCOR, and The Arc to provide free online training to the US public safety community. The training includes ten relevant, concise, and easily accessible courses to increase awareness and understanding of this population, including how to assess behaviors quickly and respond as effectively as possible.
