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.
