(Approved Steps to Supplement Emergency Responder Training)

ASSERT began as a grass roots project in December 2006 in response to the tragic shooting of a young man by police responding to a call for assistance. This group of concerned citizens became an official part of the Lane County branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Lane County). Steadfast work on their behalf resulted in  Eugene's first CIT training December 15-19, 2008.
Since then, the Eugene Police Department has scheduled three additional CIT trainings for 2010. These training courses for officers will do much to allow police officers to understand those with a mental illness and how to treat them with care and respect.
