The Redcloud Early Detection System gives us more eyes and ears.


Here's some things you should know.

What is a mental wellness detection system?

A mental wellness detection system is a method used by an entity to access the mental state of an individual.

Why is it so important to adopt a standard for mental wellness detection?

Right now, Gunnison doesn’t have a widely adopted standard for detecting mental states. Our detection methods can vary from organization to organization, or even from individual to individual in the same room. Public awareness of detection and response systems is low. Adopting a standard system will accomplish the following:

  • Make it easier for individuals to connect others to help

  • Expand access to mental health first aid training

  • Provide guidance for non-professionals to handle difficult situations

  • Simplify the process of reporting events

  • Supply extra eyes and ears for mental health organizations

What makes the Redcloud Early Detection System a viable standard?

REDS was built with two big things in mind: simplicity and accessibility. REDS is a viable standard to adopt because it’s easy to understand and remember, helping us increase detection. Additionally, the Handoff system is accessible and highly versatile, making it easy to use for non-professionals who need to report situations.

Here's how you can help us make this a standard.
