The November 2016 Knowledge Network for Systems of Care TV (KSOC-TV) webcast highlights the changing role of law enforcement in supporting youth and young adults with mental health needs. The program included evidence-based strategies to combine efforts of police officers, mental health educators, and community advocates to resolve potentially volatile situations in more positive ways.
