CROSSROADS CONSULTING 360

Creating the RIGHT response, at the RIGHT time, by the RIGHT person.

ABOUT US

The RIGHT Team

With the changing ideas by communities all over the country of what they want from their local law enforcement agencies and the increasing awareness of the role mental health plays in crisis response, both law enforcement agencies and mental health providers find themselves at a Crossroads. Each entity is recognizing the need to expand their views to a full 360 degrees. Thus, Crossroads Consulting 360, LLC was born. At CC360, we guide our law enforcement partners in creating a specialized response plan that meets their community’s unique and individual needs.

Our Why

“Effective PMHC (police mental health collaboration) programs are defined by collaborative partnerships with law enforcement agencies, mental health providers, and other community-based entities. PMHC programs are producing better outcomes for consumers, officers, and agencies.”

“. . . practitioners and researchers both note the increased use of out-patient services and reduction in transfers (to inpatient services) by the police. They note that on-site assessments are more accurate and enable clinicians to communicate with, and partner with, family and friends of the individuals in crisis. That enables better short-term outcomes and preventative follow-up work that, research and experience shows, can actually prevent repeated law enforcement contacts with the same individuals.”

Consultants Past Highlights

Brand Strategy

Two local police officers, Steve Johns and Patrick O'Bryan tracked chronic inebriates for six months and found that just one of them ran up a bill of a hundred thousand dollars at a single hospital. For the ten years, he had been on the streets, Murray had run up a medical bill as large as anyone in Nevada

Brand Strategy

“Our goal is not to arrest people,” says Detective Weed, “The goal is to help people get into the correct field that they need in, to get the help that they need.” Detective Weed believes the program not only helps out people in our community, but it helps law enforcement officers as well.

Mental Health: Law enforcement nds another approach

In September, the Sheri's Oce launched a program that pairs deputies with professionals from Compass Health in an attempt to peacefully resolve issues stemming from mental health crises so that a trip to jail doesn't become necessary. In the past, when deputies responded to a person in crisis, they have given out a phone number and encouraged the person to get connected with services.

Mental Health: Pandemic has had wide-ranging eects

Parents turned into work-from-home teachers, children at home without their friends, health care workers in full-body protective gear, hospitality workers suddenly unemployed, families losing loved ones. No one has been untouched by the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic. Intense emotions including anxiety, anger, fear, frustration, grief, loneliness, and sadness have become common since the COVID-19 pandemic reached Skagit County in March.
