Mental health and first responders
Following the passage of Initiative 940 last fall, the Snohomish County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness is hosting a public input meeting Tuesday night.
The law is intended to ensure police are trained to use deadly force only when it’s unavoidable. Committee members from the implementation committee and members of law enforcement will be present at the meeting, which is open to the public. People who have direct experience with mental health crises and first responders are encouraged to attend and share their thoughts.
The event takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., April 30, in the Compass Health Federal Campus gymnasium, 4526 Federal Ave., Everett.
