Here is the study overview:


This study is about how mental health records are shared during a mental health crisis. We want to know about participants attitudes, knowledge, and experiences with the exchange of mental health records.


In order to join in, participants must (a) be over 18 years of age or older, and (b) live in the state of Texas, and (c) have had experiences with emergency mental health care* for either yourself, a loved one, or in relation to your work as either a mental health advocate, healthcare provider, or member of the criminal justice system.


*You have had experiences with emergency mental health care if you,

a loved one, or someone under your professional care required services

to meet the needs of a sudden mental health crisis in which

their behavior puts them at risk of hurting themselves or others, and/or prevents

them from being able to care for themselves or function effectively in the community.
