Police Conceptions of Mental Illness
Group: Kent State University
Movement of people with serious mental illness from hospitals to the community has resulted in an increase in interactions between people with mental illness and the criminal justice system, including police officers and the courts. This study used longitudinal survey data of police officers from a mid-western city prior to and at least one year after Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training to characterize officers’ conceptions of mental illness and its perceived causes, their perception of the dangerousness of people with mental illness, and their desired social distance from (or level of comfort with) someone with a mental illness.
