LEAD Community Toolkit
Tools to understand, implement, and evaluate LEAD for your community.
LEAD enhances public safety and equity by diverting people with unmet behavioral health needs away from jail and prosecution and into nonpunitive, collaborative, community-based systems of care.
What is LEAD?
Systems change for better public safety
LEAD enhances safety, health, and equity by building a community-based alternative to jail and prosecution for people whose unlawful behavior stems from unmanaged substance use, mental health challenges, or extreme poverty.
