Great article from the Council of State Governments about what other jurisdictions have done to improve responses to people in a mental health crisis. In Houston, they embed mental health counselors in their 911 emergency center, so counselors can de-escalate the situation, connect that person to services, provide alternatives to police response, and if a police response is needed, the counselor continues to provide assistance. In addition to saving money, the program provides better services to the community. #WinWin

Thank you to The National Judicial College for an incredibly informative webinar on how courts and judges in our country and all over the world are moving forward during the pandemic to continue to provide access to justice while keeping communities safe. It’s time to get innovative!

My first time doing a presentation on zoom! Thank you to Nevada Legal Services for hosting a great CLE on records sealing. Thank you to all the attendees and for the great questions about what can be a very complicated process.
