CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM (CIT)
Since 1988, NAMI and our national network of local and state organizations have partnered with law enforcement agencies on Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs, which help law enforcement cope with these difficult calls for service and increase safety in these situations—for officers, individuals in crisis and bystanders.
In over 2,700 communities, CIT programs have provided top-notch training for officers, and helped deal with problems like:
- Besides jail, where can an officer take a person for mental health treatment—especially in the middle of the night?
- How can we speed up the transfer of custody at the emergency Department, so officers can get back to work more quickly?
- Why do we keep getting calls for service of the same individual in crisis—sometimes only 24 or 48 hours after we’ve taken them to the hospital for an emergency psychiatric hold?
If you find yourself in a mental health crisis situation, remember to dial 9-1-1, let the dispatch operator know you have a relative with a mental illness in crisis and request that a CIT-trained officer be dispatched.
