This week we learned that mental illness is a complex and costly problem in communities. Unfortunately, community resources can be limited, so it is important for nurses to be aware of the resources that are available and to develop strategies for getting clients the mental health services that they need.

Does the police department have a crisis intervention team? Describe the resources available, explain whether you feel they are sufficient, and offer suggestions for programs that you would like to see implemented.
