Supporting Crisis Services to Serve Children and Adults With Cognitive Disabilities and Behavioral Health Conditions

December 18, 2023
Deadline to apply: Friday, January 19, 2024

The Link Center’s Policy Academy will assist as many as five state, territory, or tribal teams in creating resources and standard operating strategies that support an inclusive, accessible 988/Lifeline and crisis response system. The Academy will train teams to develop critical in-state, cross-systems strategies that support children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), brain injury (BI), and other cognitive and/or communication disabilities or differences who need 988 or other crisis response services.

The Link Center will host two informational meetings on the application process: 
Monday, December 18, 2023: 2:00-3:00 PM ET
Thursday, January 4, 2024: 2:00-3:00 PM ET
Please review the application and share it with your partners. Successful teams will include representatives from across state/tribe/territory systems. This policy academy is funded through an agreement with ACL and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Contact with any questions or accessibility accommodations requests.
