Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Crisis Intervention Team

Mental Health in the county where I work has done some innovative things for mental health/ police officer cooperation.  One of those things is the mental health department provides training for police officers who want to become certified as Crisis Intervention Team officers.  At this time there is not an active mobile mental health team for adults, and consequently the police are called upon to do mental health interventions.  However the crisis intervention team officers are provider an intensive training to help them with mental health consumers.  This started with San Jose Police Department, but has now spread to all of the police department through out the county.
