MHRAC - Mental Health Response Advisory Committee:

The Mental Health Response Advisory Committee (MHRAC) was developed as part of the Settlement Agreement in September 2015 to provide feedback, technical assistance, and support to the Cleveland Division of Police (CDP) as it relates to the coordination of crisis intervention activities in Cleveland. The Settlement Agreement between the City of Cleveland and the Department of Justice required that a Mental Health Response Advisory Committee be developed by the City and the Cleveland Division of Police (CDP).

The charge of the MHRAC is:
  • Fostering better relationships and support between the police, community and mental health providers.
  • Identifying problems and developing solutions to improve crisis outcomes.
  • Providing guidance to improving, expanding and sustaining the CDP Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Program.
  • Conducting a yearly analysis of incidents to determine if the CDP has enough specialized CIT officers, if they are deployed effectively and responding appropriately, and recommending changes to policies and procedures regarding training.
