A panel of Nevada County law enforcement, health, and nonprofit leaders will discuss “Crisis Teams in the Community: Assisting People into Services and Treatment in a virtual forum to be held on Friday, January 15, 2021. The event will take place online as a live Zoom presentation, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County.

The forum will include Nevada County Sheriff Shannan Moon; Director of the Nevada County Behavioral Health Department Phebe Bell, Grass Valley Police Chief Alex Gammelgard; Nevada City Police Chief Chad Ellis, and Executive Director of Hospitality House Nancy Baglietto.

The focus of the discussion will be a new program called the Mobile Crisis Team that was created by the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Nevada County Behavioral Health Department.
