Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training Refresher

Course Code: CJC-CITTREF

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Refresher training will cover a jail diversion and de-escalation model of training for law enforcement during which officers gain a better understanding of the needs of individuals with mental illness, substance use disorders, or intellectual/developmental disabilities. The idea is to divert them to treatment when this can be done at little risk to public safety.

While Trillium facilitates the training, it is very much a community collaboration. The training relies on the support and involvement of the local NAMI chapter, community colleges, provider agencies, hospitals, behavioral health professionals and, of course, law enforcement officials.
