About this Event

Crisis Intervention Team Training is a solution focused community model response to helping people with mental illness.

By the end of this 40-hour training academy, participants will be able to:

  • Understand common signs and symptoms of mental illness
  • Safely de-escalate individuals experiencing behavioral health crises
  • Utilize community resources and diversion strategies to provide assistance

This curriculum is taught by local specialists from law enforcement, behavioral health, and the consumer advocate field.

Academy is provided free-of-charge to departments working in Washington County. Interested participants from outside Washington County will be added to a wait list and admitted if space permits, at a cost of $200 per officer.
