Mental health and wellness affects us all and will be my number one priority for our community. When I learned of the Vitals program for first responders, I was fully on board. I went to the training and got it implemented with Cuyuna Police Department in April 2018. When I'm out meeting the public at their doors, a frequently asked question was, "What kind of training" and "how is law enforcement going to deal with mental health crisis calls?" Deescalation training is becoming mandated and the Vitals program is going to give our first responders real time, helpful information. Information when it's needed the most, at the time of the incident.
