How To Help Instead of Police.
Instead of Police is a very new site. We are actively working to verify new leads that come in so that we can list as many resources as possible. There are some easy things you can do to help:
1 MINUTE ACTION
Share the site and our account. We want people to be aware of the current resources available in their area so they can be prepared. Sharing also helps us crowd source more resources to list on the site.
2 MINUTE ACTION
Go to your state’s page on our site and see if there is a resource in your area. If so, learn more about the organization and how they respond, then save the number! If you don’t see a resource in your area, check back soon. We are working behind the scenes to verify leads in over 20 states and are researching and adding more leads to be verified everyday..
5 MINUTE ACTION
Open a search engine and search the phrase: "mobile crisis response teams in [your state, city, or county]" and email the results to us at email@example.com or press the contact button for us to verify and add to the site.
COLLABORATE WITH US
We are also looking for on-going assistance with translation, research, and calling organizations to get them verified and listed.
