Rally to Transform Mental Health Crisis Response: In New York in Memory of Miguel Richards
September 29 at 10:00 am
Please join Correct Crisis Intervention Today-NYC (CCIT-NYC) for a rally to transform mental health crisis responses in NY in memory of Miguel Richards, who was shot by NYPD during a wellness check requested by his landlord five years ago. CCIT-NYC advocates for a peer-led crisis response program instead of police involvement. Our proposed peer-led crisis response program will operate 24/7, be available citywide, and will pair trained peers with EMT’s who are unaffiliated with the FDNY or NYPD. The coordinated crisis response system will include prevention, alternatives to hospitals, and robust follow up from local service providers to avoid future crises.
WHAT: Rally to Transform Mental Health Crisis Response in NY
WHERE: Outside City Hall on the Centre Street Side (Manhattan)
WHEN: 9/29/22 at 10AM
