2nd Annual Winter Institute: Call for Presenter Applications
Call For Presenters
Call for presenters for the 2nd Annual Winter Institute for Public Safety and Behavioral Health Conference

Feb 18-20, 2020

ASU West Campus in Glendale, AZ.

The conference brings together public safety and behavioral health professionals to promote awareness and alliance.

Last year, ASU Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy brought together experts, leadership, and veterans of Arizona Public Safety sectors including:

• Firefighters • Police officers • Correctional personnel • Criminal justice professionals • Emergency medical responders • Disaster Response

In collaboration, we identified a strong need for cross training between departments as well as behavioral health professionals in order to establish coordinated community response.

Participants emphasized a need to recognize drug-induced behavioral symptoms and best ways to respond, compassion/work fatigue, trauma-informed response, and how to take a person-centered approach when responding to incidents.

To meet the needs of these individuals and agencies, we created the Winter Institute, which hosted over 225 public safety and behavioral health professionals in 2019.
