Community Partnerships

We are pleased to announce the availability of the next piece in our CIT Advocacy Toolkit: Community Partnerships. This short guide explains the role of community partnerships in a successful CIT program, and makes the case that CIT will only be successful if it is based on lasting partnerships. The guide also offers tips on how to build and maintain strong partnerships.

NAMI's CIT Advocacy Toolkit is designed to help NAMI state organizations and affiliates, law enforcement agencies, and mental health providers advocate for CIT in their communities. The construction of this toolkit is ongoing; as we develop materials, we'll let you know about them in CIT in Action. Let us know what resources would be most helpful to you! Contact Laura Usher ( with your comments and suggestions.
