From the Introduction: "Rural communities face unique challenges in implementing existing crisis response and pre-arrest diversion models for people with mental and substance use disorders. These include wide geographic areas served, limited availability of crisis services, gaps in treatment and social services, and constrained financial and staffing resources. [...] This brief features a few current strategies and technologies that rural communities can adopt to increase opportunities for crisis response and pre-arrest diversion of individuals with mental and substance use disorders from the local criminal justice system."
