Letter to HHS to issue guidance that promotes youth mobile response models that do not involve law enforcement

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) and 62 partner organizations urged the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to issue guidance and provide technical assistance for implementation to states that promote and stress the importance of youth mobile response models that do not involve law enforcement. Youth must have access to mental health supports and services that are equitable, culturally responsive, and do not involve the criminal legal system and law enforcement---particularly as an access point to care.
