Mental Health Clinician

The Canton Police Department Jail Diversion Program (JDP) was launched in December 2022, thanks to funding from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. The primary goal of the CPD JDP is to re-direct individuals committing non-violent offenses out of the criminal justice system, and to decrease the frequency of individuals with behavioral health conditions being referred to a hospital emergency department. The Canton Police Department partners with Community Impact, Inc, of Milford to provide a Master's level mental health clinician who is available to co-respond with Canton Police Officers to calls involving a mental health crisis, substance abuse, sudden death, or to any calls which officers believe their skills may be helpful. The clinician will provide immediate, on-scene assessment and support, and will follow-up with appropriate resources.
