SMART TEAM – Systemwide Mental Assessment Response Team – is a plainclothes Summit County Sheriff deputy, a behavioral health specialist, and a case manager who respond to mental health-related cases — including suicide threats, welfare checks, and more — to try to stabilize the person involved and de-escalate the situation.

SMART will respond to emergency and non-emergency crisis calls.
