Barbara Schneider Foundation 2013 Annual Report

Dear Friends,

Thanks to you and all supporters of Barbara Schneider Foundation, we had an outstanding year advancing our mission, “To promote positive outcomes for people experiencing a mental health crisis through collaborative intervention and decriminalization.”   In 2013, BSF celebrated 13 years of training, collaboration, education, advocacy and outreach to improve response to crisis.  Our programmatic work benefited 13,330 individuals.  It strengthened the response to mental health crisis calls and prevented many of these crises.  We grew partnerships with the criminal justice and mental health communities, made gains in public and private education on these issues and strengthened our bonds with our community partners.  Barbara Schneider Foundation is proud to report that in 2013 the following goals were achieved:

BSF partnered with Allina to create an all Allina “Crisis Intervention for Health Care Provider Training” for their hospital nurses, techs and security staff.   This is part of the first CIT program in the nation by a hospital system.

BSF created a new Youth Crisis Actors Troupe with a very diverse cast.

BSF co-sponsored our 7th Annual Mental Health Conference with the University of St Thomas.  BSF also co-sponsored the 13th annual conference of the Mental Health Education Project at Temple Israel.

BSF sponsored and Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office hosted two classes of 40 hour Memphis Model CIT for Law Enforcement, Detention and Corrections, CIT coach classes, CIT trainer classes, CIT refresher classes.  And with Ashland and Bayfield County WI law enforcement and human services, we put on one 40 hour CIT class, an 8 hour CIT coach class, and an 8 hour de-escalation training.   We provided 4 trainings for our community partners, and with Mental Health Resources, Anoka Co Workhouse, Luther Seminary, Blue Earth Co, metro lawyers, Mental Health Crisis Alliance, and Sherburne Co law enforcement and human services and our first mental health training for metro Imams.

BSF presented a mini training on de-escalation at the Minnesota State Police Explorers State-wide Conference

BSF expanded partnerships in the Native American, African American, Somali, Latino and Hmong communities to identify and eliminate barriers to effective mental health crisis response in their communities.  BSF continued to grow partnerships in the criminal justice and mental health communities as well.

BSF created a new Child and Adolescent Mental Health Crisis Response video to use in new trainings with those who work with children and youth and trained staff at Prairie Care Child and Adolescent mental health hospital.

BSF continues to distribute our instructional videos in hard copy form and on our web site along with a variety of other printed de-escalation tools that are useful to first responders, health care providers and community members.

It’s been a great year expanding our reach, thanks to you and all our supporters and partners.  Together we are making real strides in improving mental health crisis response and preventing mental health crises.

Barbara Schneider Foundation 2008 Annual Report

Dear Friends,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our faithful donors, and all supporters of Barbara Schneider Foundation for another outstanding year.  2008 was a record-breaking year, with more training for police officers, jail staff, paramedics, nurses, attorneys, court house staff and social service providers.  In 2008, Barbara Schneider Foundation celebrated 8 years of strengthening the response to mental health crisis calls and preventing these crises.  We grew partnerships with the criminal justice and mental health communities and made gains in public education on these issues.  Barbara Schneider Foundation is proud to report that in 2008 the following goals were achieved:

Tom Braun funded the production of the video “What’s Our Problem?” which tells the story of collaboration  among the many professions that respond to individuals in mental health crisis.

BSF sponsored the 3rd annual Minnesota CIT Conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center

Moorhead Police Department brought us in to provide a 40 hour CIT training for their officers.  One officer commented, “This has been the best training that I have attended during my entire seven year career as a police officer. I will be utilizing the skills I learned during my routine patrol activities.”

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek hosted three classes of CIT for Detention and Corrections.  One deputy commented, “Now I have a better understanding of what the world is like for a person with mental illness. Made me think about treating everyone with dignity and respect, gave me a better understanding of mental illness and how to show compassion.  Stay strong!”

Ruben Rosario of the Pioneer Press published a piece on the rescue of a young woman in crisis by CIT officers and an insightful piece on CIT training for detention and corrections staff.

It’s been a great year thanks to you and all our supporters and partners.  Together we are making real strides in improving mental health crisis response and preventing mental health crises.
