Learn about the Vitals app at AuSM's office

VitalsLogoBlueVitals is a new technology service with two apps, designed to create safer interactions between law enforcement and people with behavioral, mental health, and developmental disorders. A first of its kind, the Vitals first responder app is a non-intrusive, real-time service developed as a way to enhance policing, give families of vulnerable individuals more peace of mind, and improve the quality of life for people living with "invisible" disabilities. In October, the Vitals team will be available at AuSM's office to meet members of the community, share information about Vitals, and assist in registering for the service. You are welcome to stop by AuSM's office, meet the Vitals team, and learn more on these dates from 2-4 p.m.: Tuesday, Oct. 3; Thursday, Oct. 5; Tuesday, Oct. 10; Thursday, Oct. 12; Tuesday, Oct. 17; Thursday, Oct. 19; Monday, Oct. 23; and Thursday, Oct. 26.
