A man and woman stand in front of a crisis vehicle

Amanda and Akin, Mobile Crisis Team workers, stand in front of a crisis vehicle. “All we carry is identification in case people want to see it,” said Amanda. “Dressing in regular clothes with minimal markings on our vehicle allow us to have a more human-to-human connection, aiming to minimize power imbalances and reduce stigma.”
