Nebraska law enforcement officials are using Secure Telehealth in their vehicle laptops to allow mental health evaluations of at-risk individuals on the spot.
The evaluating counselors are made available through the Targeted Adult Service Coordination Program, begun in 2005 to provide crisis response assistance to law enforcement and local hospitals dealing with people struggling with behavioral health problems. The counselors respond to law enforcement calls to provide consultation, assistance in recognizing a client’s needs and help with identifying resources to meet those needs. The no-charge service is offered to 35 sheriffs, municipal and other departments in 16 rural counties in the southeast section of the Cornhusker state.
