Mental Health First Aid in the Orland Park Police Department

In March 2016, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) launched the One Mind Campaign in response to the growing number and frequency of interactions between police and individuals with mental illness and substance use disorder, putting both officers and the community at risk. This campaign seeks to empower officers with training, model policies for response and strong community partnerships. Since its inception, the One Mind Campaign has focused on promoting successful interactions between police officers and those with mental illnesses.
