Psychiatric Emergency Response Team (PERT) information provided by: County of San Diego Mental Health Services

Provides emergency assessment and referral for individuals with mental illness who come to the attention of law enforcement through phone calls from community members or in-field law enforcement request for emergency assistance. PERT pairs licensed mental health clinicians with uniformed law enforcement officers/deputies. Clinicians work out of individual law enforcement divisions and respond in the field with their law enforcement partners. The PERT team evaluates the situation, assesses the individual's mental health condition and needs, and, if appropriate, transports individual to a hospital or other treatment center, or referees him/her to a community-based resource or treatment facility.

Our family was experiencing an emergency and we could not get this team to assist because there was no one on duty. But Pert claims 7 days a week.

My interaction with a Sheriffs' PERT Team didn't go well on 21 Aug 2017. They made no attempt to de-escalate the situation and simply hauled me off on a Code 5150 72 hour Involuntary Hold. Refused my request to contact Legal Counsel. I ended up being held for two days before they realized I shouldn't have been detained against my will. I was never interviewed by the PERT LMFT who is supposed to be trained to evaluate the Mental Health individual. Was never read any of the required forms, and was not given the Patient Rights as required by law.
