The Co – Responder also consults with police officers when responding to mental health – related calls.

As needed, referrals to services and resources such as primary care, social services, mental health treatment, and chemical use treatment are provided. Co – Responders collaborate not only with law enforcement, but also with emergency services, human services, and other members of the community.
