Enhancing the Effectiveness of Public Safety-led Overdose Prevention in Black, Indigenous and People of Color Communities

March 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Individuals, communities and health care systems across the country are struggling to cope with the ongoing overdose epidemic, which is having a disproportionate impact on communities of color. This webinar will present a new approach to enhance the effectiveness of public safety-led overdose prevention in Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities. It combines three proven models to enhance overdose prevention and response: trauma-informed care, recovery-oriented systems of care and procedural justice.

The goals of this webinar are:

1. Introduce the Public Safety-led Community-oriented Overdose Prevention Efforts (PS-COPE) framework for enhancing overdose prevention within BIPOC communities.

2. Provide examples of how key PS-COPE concepts and principles have been integrated into public safety-led overdose prevention and response programs.

3. Overview the National Council for Mental Wellbeing’s PS-COPE toolkit and how public safety agencies can use it to enhance their overdose prevention and response programs.
