Our training is designed for all sworn officers: police, sheriff deputies, corrections, park police, transit police, DNR officers, state troopers and security officers. Others can benefit as well, such as: county employees and other mental health professionals who may be in contact with people experiencing a mental health crisis. Such training enables (supports) a more collaborative relationship with law enforcement in a time of need.
Crisis Intervention Team training is important for all first responders as well as others who may come in contact with a person during a mental health crisis, such as hospital staff, corrections officers, EMTs, and paramedics, to name a few.
Currently, our CIT certification training is focused towards a law enforcement audience because of the new POST-mandated training requirements. However, MN CIT has curriculum for non-law enforcement audiences as well. These classes are offered upon special request.
Our Mental Health Awareness class is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about mental health with an overview of the most common mental health conditions. More information on this one-day class can be found on our Courses page.
