CIT training for Law Enforcement and Corrections at Hennepin County Public Safety Facility

The Mental Health Crisis Response Institute, MHCRI, brings all the Barbara Schneider Foundation’s training programs together to strengthen the overarching themes of our mission and goals.  The Mental Health Crisis Response Institute grows the Foundation’s training mission by partnering with expert trainers and local agencies to provide effective de-escalation skills and strategies to professionals that encounter a person in a mental health crisis.  These skills will increase safety for the responder and participants in the encounter, reduce the need for seclusion and restraints, reduce the trauma of the crisis, and keep the person in crisis on the road to recovery and wellness.

"Your efforts have improved the lives of people with mental illness and helped others better understand the challenges of mental illness so all people can be treated equally, with dignity and respect.” 

Richard W. Stanek, Hennepin County Sheriff 

We appreciate BSF’s training  approach and support  their efforts to encourage collaboration between criminal justice and mental health in mental health crisis response.
