Skills-Based Crisis Response Training
Through a Disability Justice & Abolitionist LensEnroll in Course
Join Project LETS Core Team members for a skills-based crisis response training. We’ll be discussing: harm reduction and safety, care without cops, psychological first aid, de-escalation and stabilization, needs assessments, maximizing autonomy, and setting boundaries. The information, skills, and resources presented during this training have been developed by folks who have lived experience of mental illness/madness, trauma, neurodivergence, and psychiatric hospitalization/incarceration; and our approach centers the values of anti-racism, abolition, and Disability Justice. This will be an interactive space where folks will be offered opportunities to discuss and practice the skills we’re sharing. Live captioning and ASL interpretation provided.
