Our Next Educational Meeting


Delaware’s Crisis Intervention Team:

What You Need To Know

  • Date: Monday, May 18th, 2015
  • Time: 7:15 P.M. to 9:00 PM
  • Place: Aldersgate United Methodist Church
    2313 Concord Pike (Rt. 202)
    Wilmington, Delaware.

    At times, the police are called to intervene and assist when a mental health crisis arises. It is helpful to know what to do if you or a loved one are in that situation, and what the police may ask or need from those present.

    On Monday evening, May 18, 2015, New Directions welcomes Dr. Joshua Thomas and Sgt. Harold Bozeman to present on this topic. Dr. Thomas and Sgt. Bozeman will review how the police are educated about mental illness and crisis intervention, what to do if you or a loved one are in crisis, and the history of the crisis intervention team. Dr. Thomas is the president of NAMI Delaware, and Sgt. Bozeman is an officer with the Wilmington City Police Department.
