Who is MH First Sacramento: MH First Sacramento, a project of Anti Police-Terror Project, is a Cutting-edge new model for a non-police response to mental health crises. The goal of MH First is to respond to mental health crises including, but not limited to, crisis response, substance use support, and domestic violence safety planning.
Our purpose is to interrupt and eliminate the need for law enforcement in mental health crisis first response by providing mobile peer support, de-escalation assistance, and non-punitive and life-affirming interventions, therefore decriminalizing emotional and psychological crises and decreasing the stigma around mental health, substance use, and domestic violence, while also addressing their root causes: white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism.
