Ep. 26 – “What is a Mental Health 5150?”

In this twenty-sixth episode, I am re-releasing episode 10 to emphasize the importance of understanding what a Mental Health 5150 is. You will hear from Renee Balcom, a health advocate advisor, to discuss how and when a 5150 should be incorporated in a situation. If you are ever with someone who is mentally unstable and causing a safety concern for themselves or others, a Mental Health 5150 will be of great help. Throughout this episode, Renee shares stories from her work with clients that she has had to call a 5150 for, what her advice is for when you need to call for a 5150, her steps for working with clients, and more.
