Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) is an innovative diversion program developed through a partnership between the Collier County Sheriff’s Office and DLC. Collier County is taking the LEAD to save lives and improve public safety.
An important part of helping our community stay safe & healthy is making sure that our First Responders and Community Safety Professionals are taken care of. First Responders can be at higher risk for developing a mental health condition due to their exposure to stressful work conditions. It is vital for our frontline community professionals to have access to resources and treatment– by first taking care of themselves, they are in a better position to support others.
DLC is offering Youth & Adult Mental Health First Aid training to recognize the signs and symptoms of adult & children experiencing a mental health crisis, and how to respond. The program introduces participants to risk factors and their impact, overviews common treatments and teaches how to safely de-escalate a crisis. Take action and create meaningful change in our community’s mental health crisis by registering for an upcoming training.
