CIT does not stand for "Crisis Intervention Training" as many believe but "Crisis Intervention Team".   CIT is an innovative first responder model of mental health crisis intervention and prevention with community, law enforcement, healthcare and advocacy partnerships.  There is much more to CIT than just training. CIT is a program that provides the foundation necessary to promote community and statewide solutionson how torecognize, prevent, manage and de-escalate mental health crisis. CIT provides a forum for effective problem solving regarding the interaction between the criminal justice and mental healthcare systems and creates the context for sustainable change in communities, counties, states and nationally. Indigenous communities on reservations and in urban communities have also gotten involved through the program: Indigenizing Crisis Intervention Teams in Indian Country

This conference will provide opportunities for CIT practitioners and community and state leaders to discuss collaborations that will build safe, strong, healthy communities where everyone can recover and live in wellness.
