In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, HBO has made the film, Ernie & Joe: Crisis Cops, available for free on their YouTube branded channel until 5/31/20.
ERNIE & JOE is an intimate portrait of two Texas police officers who are helping change the way police respond to mental health calls. The film takes audiences on a personal journey, weaving together their experiences during their daily encounters with people in crisis. These two officers are not your everyday cops. They are part of the San Antonio Police Department’s 10-person Mental Health Unit.
