"To Give Back to the World: The Barbara Schneider Story"
Barbara Schneider died on June 12, 2000, when she was shot by police during a confrontation in a mental health crisis call.
Immediately after Barbara's tragic death, mental health community advocates and law enforcement professionals came together
to create a variety of training initiatives for law enforcement, mental health providers, and local and state policy makers.
Since then the Barbara Schneider Foundation has been involved in working to improve the health care response to mental health
crisis. The result has been more appropriate and effective mental health crisis response, improved officer safety and
growing police/community partnerships. People who knew Barbara well talk about her life and her accomplishments in this
training video. 9 minutes.
