Johns Hopkins University to Launch Behavioral Health Crisis Response Initiative

Johns Hopkins University today announced plans to develop a Behavioral Health Crisis Support Team to serve students, faculty, staff, and community members experiencing a behavioral health crisis on or near its Baltimore campuses. This pilot program will launch in the fall of 2021, first around Homewood and then expanding to the university’s other Baltimore campuses. The approach addresses the growing need for innovative public health responses to behavioral and mental health crises and is modeled after best practices for public safety operations.
