Our Mission

CIT training Our mission is to provide law enforcement personnel and mental health professionals with information and training in how to safely and compassionately handle a person in a mental health crisis.

With the help of law enforcement officers and mental health professionals, we provide training to police officers, corrections officers, and mental health providers and professionals on how to successfully build a CIT team.

Our training is based on the nationally recognized Memphis Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model, which promotes the use of verbal de-escalation skills before using force when confronting a mental health crisis. CIT training has been proven to dramatically decrease the risk of injuries or death to both officers and those suffering from mental illness, while also reducing the number of repeat calls.
