Mental Health in Tucson

The city of Tucson has established a crisis response center to assist police officers who receive calls about residents with mental health issues. In 2014, the crisis center directed 1,700 callers with mental health concerns to a clinician, case worker, or other mental health professional. More than 90% of calls were resolved over the telephone, allowing police officers to focus on criminal emergencies.

The Tucson Police Department has a special unit that responds to mental health crises, serves court orders on residents with mental health issues, and supervises people with mental health issues who may be a danger to themselves or others. Rather than bringing individuals with mental health concerns to jail or an emergency room, police officers may take them to the crisis center for needed care.
