Take Action

We have an opportunity to #ReimagineCrisis. Join leading organizations to demand that our elected officials reimagine our crisis response system. Together, we can ensure that every person experiencing a mental health or suicidal crisis receives a humane response and is treated with dignity and respect.

Take action to #ReimagineCrisis in your community

Every person experiencing a mental health or suicidal crisis deserves a mental health response. And any person could be impacted by a behavioral health crisis. Contact your elected officials and urge them to implement this life-saving system of care and #ReimagineCrisis.
