White Bird Clinic’s mobile crisis response program, Crisis Helping Out On The Streets (CAHOOTS) has gained national attention as a longstanding public-private partnership which delivers crisis and community health first response, resulting in minimized police interactions, jail diversion, reduced ambulance and hospital visits, and responsive, on-site human services support.

Our team is currently reimagining how CAHOOTS and White Bird Clinic can be a sustainable resource for communities around the world searching for dynamic alternatives to police response in the mental health field. As we take this intentional pause, we want to make sure we can keep connected to anyone seeking our help. Please fill out this form so that we can keep track of your request. We look forward to working with you soon.

For more information about White Bird’s consultation services, which can assist your community in developing a CAHOOTS model mobile crisis response unit or provide information about other programs at White Bird, please visit our Consulting Services page.


Trainings and Community Education

White Bird Clinic provides a range of training opportunities for the local community. Community trainings are often a source of fundraising for White Bird, but costs are adjustable based on group size, amount of time, and ability to pay. We only ask that a group pay what they can with the proceeds going to support our agency’s continuing efforts locally. We enjoy sharing information and resources about our agency and table at local events when possible.
