Marcus Alert (Mental Health Awareness Response & Community Understanding Services)

The ‘Marcus Alert,’ a statewide mental health alert system to ensure behavioral health experts are involved in responding to individuals in crisis, including by limiting the role of law enforcement. The legislation creates a mental health awareness response and community understanding services (Marcus) alert system, and creates teams of mental health service providers and peer recovery specialists to promote a behavioral health response to individuals in crisis, including those with substance abuse disorder and developmental disabilities.

Starting July 1, 2021, localities had to establish a voluntary database to be made available to the 911 alert system to provide mental health information and emergency contact information for response to an emergency or crisis.

If you are experiencing a behavioral health crisis secondary to mental illness, substance abuse, development disabilities, or any combination thereof, and you wish to voluntarily give us information about yourself, please contact the King and Queen County Sheriff’s’ Office at (804)785-7400.
