Winter Institute
Public Safety & Behavioral Health

The ASU Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Winter Institute for Public Safety & Behavioral Health Conference will be held Tuesday, February 18 through Thursday Feb 20, 2020 at the ASU West Campus in Glendale, AZ.

The conference brings together experts, leadership, and veterans of Arizona Public Safety sectors including: firefighters, police officers, correctional personnel, dispatchers, emergency medical services and other first responders. There is a clear and strong need for cross-training between sectors in order to establish a coordinated community response. 

Last year, over 225 attendees heard from such distinguished speakers as Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, CEO of the 100 Club Angela Harolle, DPS Assistant Director Lt. Col. Daniel Lugo, mental health advocates and attorneys Chick Arnold & Josh Mozelle, sleep and stress expert Dr. Patricia Haynes, and Lori Robinson of Tempe CARE 7 Crisis Response.

This year, the Winter Institute advisory board, made up of public safety representatives across central Arizona, emphasized a need to learn more about trauma-informed response, de-escalation, compassion/work fatigue, suicide prevention, self-care and drug-induced behavioral symptoms. We hope to expand the diversity of our educational sessions, as well as add numerous elements of fun and opportunities to network and converse with like-minded colleagues.
