Chico, Calif.-- On Tuesday night the Chico City Council voted unanimously to support police officers responding to emergencies where mental health issues are a factor.

In 2017 there were more than 1,5000 mental health related calls. That's why the city council agreed to start the mobile crisis team, a collaboration between the Butte County Department of Behavioral Health and the Chico Police Department.

Two counselors will now provide crisis-related outreach and engagement, as well as responding to 9-1-1 calls.
