Right Care

Create alternatives to high-cost incarcerations and unnecessary emergency department utilization and services by developing comprehensive, integrated models of care through strategic public and private partnerships

Right Time

Reduce waste and duplication by ensuring alignment of local, federal and state planning and dollars toward a shared vision of improving the community’s safety net

Right Place

In a mental health crisis, people are more likely to encounter police than get medical help. Diversion programs reduce arrests, jail days, hospital stays and total criminal justice expenditures.
