The Bridge Program
New Mental Health Support for UD Residents from UDPD

I brought together the Montgomery County Mobile Crisis Unit and the UD Police Chief Fran Wheatly to explore expanded services for the residents of UD. The result – The Bridge.
Thanks to Chief Wheatley and the Upper Dublin Police Department, a new mental health service is available to UD residents that will deliver quick and appropriate emergency mental health support. I strongly supported Chief Wheatley and the UDPD working with the Mobile Crisis Unit of Montgomery County to create
The Bridge Program.

Chief Wheatley and his department did a commendable job in fleshing out
The Bridge Program and have provided a workable structure that will ensure coordination of services. The Bridge Program has proven to be a benefit to our community.

Upper Dublin Police Community Resources Unit (CRU) provides two crisis services for residents of Upper Dublin:
The Bridge and The HUB. These two programs are described in the links below.
