Our research team is currently conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the implementation, service delivery and training, and short and long term outcomes of the Grande Prairie Police and Crisis Team (PACT) program. The evaluation will lead to impactful recommendations for the improvement of the PACT program, and also have long term implications for mental health communities, applications and programs in the City of Grande Prairie.
