Crisis Intervention Training
The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Program is a collaboration of professionals committed to assisting persons with behavioral health disorders (mental illness, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and addictive disease).
This collaboration includes local members of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), mental health service providers, family members, and law enforcement officers. The most important aspect of the CIT Program is the training provided to law enforcement officers.

In Our Own Voice can assist law enforcement officials in fostering a deeper understanding of what it is like to live day in and day out with a mental health condition.
