Have Your Say About Community Crisis Response!

The city is preparing to create a community crisis response team to respond to emergency calls for which police, ambulance or fire aren’t appropriate, including when people are in distress due to mental health and substance use problems. Let the city know what the new team should look like. Who should be on it? What support should they provide? How can we be sure it remains accountable to the community? Text/leave a message at (475) 212-2510, email ccrt@newhavenct.gov, or drop off your ideas on paper at all local library branches. Visit bit.ly/nhccrt to learn more!
Thank you!
