Emergency Services Beacon

         As an Urgent Care platform, WL WELL VHS has developed an answer to the question: "Who do you call, OTHER THAN THE POLICE, during a
Mental Health Emergency?" 

Introducing the

One in four fatal police shootings involves a person with a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness. 

Mental Illness is just that, an illness; a medical condition. Yet, the way most communities across the United States have chosen to address those suffering from unexpected emergency episodes is to dispatch untrained and unprepared police officers. This most often results in disaster.

WL WELL VHS at its core is a Virtual Urgent Care Telehealth Platform. What better way is there than to treat these unexpected often minor Mental Healthcare Emergencies like Urgent Care visits? Through a mobile virtual dispatch system.

         The Emergency Services Beacon is a revolutionary way for individuals, family and friends, or even good samaritans to request immediate help without dispatching police officers, who often criminalize "odd" behavior, rather than identify the signs often associated with mental health breakdowns.

         The ESB is not a "slight" towards police officers, but a purposefully built alternative to dialing 911. The ESB also creates a destination for state and local governments to devote resources to for the general health, safety, and welfare of its residents and guests.
