Event connects mental health professionals

Most of Clark County’s mental health cases come before Judge Dan Moore



“The training of a CIT officer is intended to let that officer know the tools to use to decide if that person goes to our jail for disorderly conduct or public intoxication or if that person goes to a hospital,” Moore said. “It’s a shame that in Clark County our funding situation is such that we couldn’t continue this police training.” 

Even without the law enforcement training, plenty of medical professionals still are able to diagnosis these illnesses accurately every day. Moore called the social workers, doctors and other behavioral therapists heroes. 

“Your job is the hardest part. Right there on the front line, accessing what is going on,” he said. “I can’t say enough about the heroes. I marvel at it all the time. It’s a shame that in this community there isn’t more recognition for the work you do.”
