REIMAGINE: Week of Action to Reimagine Our National Response to People in Crisis.

November 16, 2021 @ 10:30 am - November 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

For far too long, people experiencing mental health or suicidal crisis haven’t received the mental health care they deserve. Instead of receiving compassionate care, people in crisis frequently languish in ERs, interact with law enforcement and struggle with substance use and homelessness.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With 988, the new three-digit number for mental health, substance use and suicidal crises that will go live nationwide by July 2022 — we have an opportunity to #ReimagineCrisis.

Join us virtually for REIMAGINE: A week of action to reimagine our national response to people in crisis, Nov. 16–18. REIMAGINE will bring together leading organizations to elevate crisis response and coordinate federal and state advocacy efforts to establish and fully fund our country’s crisis response systems.

At REIMAGINE, you can:

  • Hear personal stories from individuals with lived experience of our current crisis system
  • Join panel discussions with organizations that bring civil rights, providers, law enforcement and youth perspectives to the conversation of how crisis response intersects with other key factors
  • For individuals leading or engaging in advocacy efforts, join a 988 Advocacy Intensive to gain insight on policy details and advocacy tactics
  • Contact policymakers to share why they should prioritize improving our crisis system

Register today to learn more about our current response to mental health and suicidal crises, how it intersects with different communities, how you can help #ReimagineCrisis — and, ultimately, how we can work together to build a better, more equitable crisis system.
