CRISIS INTERVENTION TRAINING - 24 HOUR CLASS
** GEARED FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT & EMERGENCY RELATED FIRST RESPONDERS **
This class is geared for emergency first responders and is an in-depth course designed to assist dispatchers and first responders with identifying and assisting individuals with mental illnesses. CIT is designed to promote community solutions to assist individuals with mental illnesses. The course is a law-enforcement based crisis intervention partnership with community and health care groups.
