Job Summary
Crisis Outreach Specialists are mobilized to respond quickly to requests for crisis intervention from police, fire, medics, schools, hospital personnel, community members, and community agencies involved in the crisis. The team manages referrals as well as diagnostic assessment and crisis intervention treatment services. We aim to connect individuals in a mental health or substance use crisis to more treatment options, other than jail or the emergency rooms. We are working to stop the trend of criminalizing mental illness and making sure individuals in mental health crises get the help they need. The LCOT team works throughout Lummi Tribal Lands and the inter-connected communities of Whatcom County where the Lummi people and their families live.
